The verse of the day is Matthew 5:13. “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it useful again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.
All the shakers were acquired by the same person who had collected them over the years. The purpose for these cute and crazy utensils is to dispense a common but useful seasoning for all sorts of fare. But the problem is that with this many in one home they were all relegated to a useless existence in a huge china cabinet.
God calls His children the salt of the earth. When believers share the good news of God’s salvation the message is sprinkled all over the world. Others can taste and see that the Lord is good and may choose to accept Him as their Savior, too. But what happens when salt has lost its flavor? It is thrown in the garbage and new salt is purchased. When those who confess Jesus as Lord do not share their faith, God will eventually remove their influence from this world.
