Taste

September 18, 2018

 

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. Matthew 5:13 (NIV)

 

You ever had days where you feel like you aren’t worth much? Feeling like you are someone that gets trampled on instead of adding flavor to other people’s lives. I think this happens to all of us at some point in life. We have valley experiences and mountaintop experiences that don’t define us but help us mature. Ernest Hemingway said, “The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.”

 

Don’t lose your saltiness because of the what, but become more flavorful because of the who. The "what" will always change, but the "who" will remain. The "what" is defined as the different situations and circumstances you face in this life. The "who" is defined as Jesus Christ. He is the one that will never leave you nor forsake you, and He is always near. He is the supplier of not only the salt, but it’s saltiness. 

 

We lose our flavor when we believe in the lies of the enemy and the world. You do have worth and flavor because God made you. He is with you, and He is for you. You are God’s prized possession and today because He lives in you there is flavor coming out of you that others can taste. The taste of God will never leave our mouths.

 

Prayer

God, I pray today that the people around me will taste and see that the Lord is good because of the hope of the Gospel (salt) that you have placed in me. God plant us firm during the “what’s” of life and let us all trust in the “who” that is you. Amen.
