Jesus tells us me I am the salt of the earth. I are here to season the world and make others want what I have that tastes so good. But if I don't get out of my salt shaker I become clogged and nothing comes out. Sometimes the clogs sneak up on me. I become too comfortable in my own little world and suddenly I realize I'm not making much of a difference.
How do I make sure my dispenser is shaking out the salt of the Word and not sitting there with no purpose?
- I need to get out of the shaker. I can take a stand when something isn't right. I don't have to just go with the flow and have the same opinions everyone else has.
- I can show love and kindness by finding ways to help others around me. I need to become aware of people's needs and meet them whenever possible.
- Most of all, I need to stay in the Word so "my speech can be with grace seasoned with salt that I can know how to answer each one" (Colossians 4:6).
If I can keep my saltiness unclogged, I can make others hungry for the bread of life and thirsty for living water.
What about you? How do you stay unclogged?
