Please Pass the Salt

Salt or no salt? That’s my first question on this Southern-fried Friday. The second one is related but double fried. When did you figure out what you wanted to do the rest of your life? Age ten, twenty, forty, still don’t know? Not a problem, here’s the answer.

“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.” Wow, those are strong words spoken with tough love by Jesus in Matthew 5:13. Sure wish I’d heard them said this plainly years ago. But no good comes from dwelling in the past. Let’s go forward and add salt to our life. Notice I said life not diet. My husband has the diet part well covered. He salts everything at least twice regardless how much I’ve added to the recipe.

Now it’s your turn. Salt or no salt? Hmm, makes me want popcorn, homegrown tomatoes, French fries . . .
