How’s Your Salt

“Salt is good and beneficial, but if salt has lost its saltness, how will you restore the saltness to it?  Have salt within yourselves and be at peace, live in harmony with one another.”  Mark 9:50  Amplified

I encourage you to read chapter 9 of Mark, it’s a very busy chapter, but what is the salt He says we need to have within us?   In Matthew 5 Jesus is speaking to the crowd, and just after giving the beattitudes He said, “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltness be restored?”  He goes on to tell us to let our light shine.

What are the beattitudes?  1. The poor in spirit/humble. 2. Those who mourn/have concern for others. 3. The meek/patient. 4. Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness/right with God. 5. The merciful/forgive others. 6. The pure in heart/seeking God. 7. The peacemakers/heirs with Christ. 8. Those who are persecuted/inherit the kingdom.

I believe these are the salt makers, go and be salt in your world, have peace within and live in harmony with one another.
