“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored?” - Matthew 5:13
The homeliness of this image, of a first century housewife swishing her cloth bag with a lump of salt through her cooking, only to realize that all the salt has leached out and there is nothing to add flavor to her soup. Jesus likens us to that tasteless mineral lump when we relapse into Christians without zest.
What savor do we add to a world hungry for something more? It is to be pondered in prayer.
