“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”
Jesus says to us that, if we are salty, we are valuable, purifying people who give flavor to life.
One thing that I want to point out is that Jesus does not say you WILL BECOME the salt of the earth. He does not say once that you WERE the salt of the earth. He doesn’t even say if you follow me and do everything I tell you to do, you will become salty. What does he say? You ARE the salt of the earth.
Jesus is speaking this over people that don’t even realize how salty they are. He’s just saying to be yourself. Be your salty self. He’s like a Rafiki going to Simba and saying, you’re a lion. He’s like Morpheus going to Neo and saying, you’re in the Matrix. Are you following any of this?
Jesus is going to people that are already salt, trying to wake them up, saying, snap out of it. You are salt. Be who you are. Don’t lose your saltiness. This is important.
Reflection: Which of your “salty” abilities has the Lord used the most to help others?
