Salty

‘Salt is good; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? Luke 14:25-35   Who ever heard of salt losing it’s saltiness? On the other hand, it is possible for us to lose the desire for the taste of salt, or at least too much of it. My mother used to say, “A little bit of salt makes a whole lot of difference.” No doubt, salt in biblical Palestine as it is today is not without great value. However, we don’t always recognize how valuable salt really is. This message of consideration from Jesus comes after a discourse with his followers concerning the cost of discipleship. At some point in our lives we have to decide what is “salt” and the price we are willing to pay for it’s saltiness (hint: money isn’t necessarily involved).

Let anyone with ears to hear listen! Luke 14:25-35

And the angel said to me, ‘Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ And he said to me, ‘These are true words of God.’ Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, ‘You must not do that! I am a fellow-servant with you and your comrades who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.’ The Revelation of John 19:1-10
