Dailies ~ in His Word

Are you an old salt? Or are you fresh and new?
Go ahead and chuckle or laugh at that, but I was thinking about the fact that Old Salt’s are old sailors, who are seen in movies sitting on the dock mending their nets. Thinking on that I realize that sometimes they are old enough to be wise but also to have seen  the world in order to achieve that wisdom.
 When salt is first cleaned up and prepared for consumption it is very strong. Fact is when we buy it from some of the discount stores out there it has a weaker flavor, and because of that it has lost some of its enhancement. Salt also is used as a preservative in foods and on meats when you cook it to bring out that flavor. It makes the food more enjoyable raw and cooked as well. Before we had the fancy oils we put in our pans my mother would salt the pan before cooking meat.
As Christians we are the salt of the earth. What that means is we are here to enhance the world and also to preserve its people.
 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men.
You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid. Matthew 5:12-14

Salt is used for making things fresh but I it's old; it is useless to eat and is only good for sanding the streets in the ice and snow.  It cannot do that as well if it is too old either.
As Christians we need to stay salty by staying in His Word, in prayer and in fellowship and study with other believers. We need to hide the Word in our hearts so that it will stay fresh to us, and dig into it daily so that it will never grow old. The words that we read are what we will speak, the words that we hear are what we will live.
Think on that a while today.  Be the fresh salt! Be salty in Godly flavor!
Heavenly Father, keep Your Word fresh in our hearts that we may not just not sin but share the flavors you bring us in Your Word. In Jesus’ name, amen. !
