Matthew 5:13 – Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Jonathan made taco meat with Scoops, which sounded like a good idea at the time, but now let’s just say, our sinuses are opened! That was SPICEY!
It was then I realized what the devotional would be about today. The Lord is so amazing! He can allow ideas in so many ways! I am very thankful for the tasty way He chose to deliver this one to me!
Other than middle-of-the-night poking and prodding during hospital stays, what I remember most is the icky, bland food. Typically I find myself trying a dish if it is seasoned well, even if I do not ordinarily enjoy it.
I know it is healthier, but I have to tell you truthfully, I can go more down the “low sodium” path, dragging my heels a bit, but don’t expect me to sell out to unsalted crackers or peanuts! I want my salt! To me, just keep the watermelon and tomatoes if there’s no salt to sprinkle on top!
Sisters, let’s stay sealed in Scripture and prayer to preserve our saltiness! Who among us wants to lose our flavor, to be dried up, tasteless and unusable by the Father?
Almighty Father God
Thank You for the many ways You teach us
Lord, You know we can relate to food and taste
So You use things we can understand
You are amazing, Merciful One
We ask that You will please preserve our saltiness
May we ever represent You to others as our Beautiful King
Bursting forth with delicious flavor!
In the Name of our Savior
