Jesus said that we are the Salt of the Earth. How salty are we? Do we flavor the people around us like salt flavors food? Are we a positive influence on others? Jesus tells us to flavor the world with His Word, Love and Forgiveness. If these things are not present in our lives, something is wrong.
We need to listen and take the Lord's Word to heart. If we don't, we can become tasteless salt. That is not good.
