Fear, The thought of the day

Salt of the earth

Thought of the day:

The main ingredient for any area of ‚Äč‚Äčlife is that which gives it taste, definition or uniqueness among all other aspects of the world around us, a colorful and full of tempting offers.

The same is true when we discuss ‘salt’, the ingredient without which no quality food tastes and has no substance; An element that the Bible treats from a very special and at the same time new perspective for many of the listeners.

I rely on this statement on the well-known words of the Savior, who, looking at us, his believers, said meaningfully: ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its taste, how will it regain its salting power? Then she is good for nothing but being thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. ‘ Matthew 5:13

Why did Jesus use this analogy and not simpler or more direct ones?

Well, carefully analyzing the Word of God, in this case the Book of the Law, (referring to Leviticus chapter 2) we notice that ‘salt’ was the key element that should not be missing from any sacrifice made before the Creator, because this chemical compound Considered commonplace today, it was one of the symbols used by God to represent the ‘Covenant’ between Himself and humanity.

Understanding this mysterious Legislative detail of the Bible, the text in front of us today takes on a completely different dimension and a new weight.
In fact, by looking at it carefully, we will understand that we believers are or should be nothing more and nothing less than living examples of the Covenant that the Godhead made with humanity; ’emissaries’ of the love between the Creator and the people he created with such passion.

Motivated by these thoughts, wherever we are, we should strive today to live like the sons and daughters of a King, bringing around us the taste, essence, light and uniqueness of our Creator.

Be blessed!
