Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. – Colossians 4:6
“Seasoned with salt,” Salt has several uses. It will sting a wound, can be used to preserve food, and will break down the ice on a winter walkway, however, the phrase “seasoned with salt” refers to its properties as a seasoning. Similarly, when Christ referred to his followers as the salt of the earth He makes mention of it losing its taste, again indicating that His followers are being likened to salt as a seasoning. He even points out that once it loses its taste it’s only good for other disappointing applications such as helping people not lose their balance; not a bad property in and of itself but not the application Christ wants for his followers. Salt as a seasoning is applied to bring out that which is pleasant.
How can you bring out that which is pleasant today?
