DEVOTIONAL: Don’t Hold The Salt

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?

PRAYER

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
Jesus
Amen

SONG
“Salt and Light”

About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
