“You are the salt of the earth.”
Matthew 5:13 NIV
When Jesus said that you are the salt of the earth, He is saying that you are valuable and meant to enhance this world with the flavor of His grace. In His day, salt was used as valuable currency, as well as a precious food preservative and additive that enhances flavor.
My friend, wherever God has placed you, whoever He has surrounded you with, whatever job He has given you to do, Jesus has you there for a purpose and it is not as complicated as you think it is.
You are there to add value. That alone is a gift that so many people are craving- simply the recognition that they are valued and they are valuable to God– so valuable that Jesus paid the ultimate price to love them.
You are there to be a precious preservative to the world you live in and in the work you do. Preserve respect, show dignity and honor those around you.
You are there to enhance the essence of who God has created them to be. When you celebrate what God has put in them, you liberate them to see it as well.
May God shake you up and pour you out for someone who desperately needs to know that they are precious and valuable to God. May you bring honor with you and enhance every relationship you engage in today.
