Are you an old salt? 

Whats your flavor? 

Salt is used to bring out the flavor of foods also as a preservative.

God’s Word uses it in many places to exemplify how are to speak and how we are to be strong in the words we use to draw others to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, but even more so to speak with kindness.

Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. Colossians 4:6

Does your speech draw out other person’s flavors? In other words, do you speak with kindness or are you ‘snarky’? It makes a difference how you say it.
For example: “What do you want?” or “What do you want?” It can be said either way.

When we speak we need to be sure that our words are not harsh, though there is a time to draw out the infection the salt is painful if applied wrongly. It is best when mixed with warm water and stirred.
Sometimes when the words of our mouth are spoken in harsh reality it can be done soflty, and goes smoothly in to someone’s heart and there is health from it. It can also sting like salt in an open wound.
We need to remember that we are to be a light, full of salty flavor that brings life, not death with the power of our words!

“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. Matthew 5:12-14
We need to stay fresh in the Word and not become old salt! We want our words to be strong and good! 
Heavenly Father, help us to speak as gentle salt that flavors our food and not the seawater strength of heaviness. Temper our speech with love. In Jesus name, amen.
