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.
Jesus likened His disciples to salt. They were to the world what salt is to everyday life – salt seasons food, hinders the spread of contamination, creates thirst, and brings our flavor. As Christ’s followers, we are to serve as a preservative and make others desire righteousness.
