I thought this was interesting. Perhaps you will too.
Matthew 5:13 (NKJV)13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. source
SALT A chemical compound composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl) used to preserve, purify, and season food.
Salt is one of the most common substances on the earth and cannot be destroyed by fire or time. Also known as “white gold,” it is one of the most significant substances in history, along with iron, gold, and wheat. In ancient societies it was a valuable social and economic commodity.
II, R. G. R. (2016). Salt. In J. D. Barry, D. Bomar, D. R. Brown, R. Klippenstein, D. Mangum, C. Sinclair Wolcott, … W. Widder (Eds.), The Lexham Bible Dictionary. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press.
Okay. In summary, salt is used to preserve, purify and season; and salt cannot be destroyed by fire or time.
I’d love to hear your spiritual parallels Let us be salty! 🙂
