Flavor Your World (Salt) reminds to be intentional in the flavor we spread that we might be an enticing savor that draws others to the Lord.
- Matthew 5:13 (VOICE) [including commentary in italics and quotes] “Salt draws out the good flavors subtly hidden in food and preserves what would otherwise spoil, as do those who claim to be children of God.” You, beloved, are the salt of the earth. But if salt becomes bland and loses its saltiness, can anything make it salty again? No. It is useless. It is tossed out, thrown away, or trampled.
- Psalm 34:8 (NKJV) Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
- Leviticus 2:13 (VOICE) [including commentary in italics and quotes] You must salt every grain offering you bring so that the salt of your covenant with God will not be missing. You will season all of the offerings you present with salt. “In the ancient world, salt was a valuable substance. It was used for a variety of purposes: to preserve meats, promote healing, and seal friendships. When covenants were made, people celebrated with fine meals seasoned with salt and other spices. The permanence of salt symbolized the permanence of God’s covenant with His people (Numbers 18:19). Jesus echoes this covenant practice when He instructs His followers to be salt in the world (Matthew 5:13).”
