Reading: Matthew 5: 13
Make a batch of French fries. When they have just finished cooking, let them cool down a bit and then try one. How do they taste? Do they taste okay? Or do they need something else?
Now take the salt shaker and add some salt to the French fries. Take a bite again. Now how do they taste? Better? My guess is that you said, "Yes." Salt adds flavor to the fries. Salt makes them taste better.
As Christians, we are the world's seasoning. We are the salt of the earth. We add so much to our surroundings. If we weren't here, the world would be dull and not as pleasing. We should remember that we spice up the world and we should take our jobs as salt seriously. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Make a list of ways that you want to be salt to the earth. Put them in your Bible and remind yourself frequently of your list.
