The Power of Salt
Tuesday, August 25th, 2015
You are the salt of the earth.
- Matthew 5:13 (NRSV)
Throughout history, salt has been highly valued. It is used to preserve food and enhance the flavor of food. Salt is also used to mix with water for cleaning fruit, and it is an ingredient in toothpaste to help clean and strengthen teeth.
On January 17, 2013, I learned of another use for salt. It was the morning of the dedication service for the new church building for Prachakittisuk Church at Mae Sai, Chiang Rai, Thailand. As part of the dedication ceremony, an ice sculptor had carved a beautiful cross. Just as he finished the carving, one side of the cross broke off. The sculptor quickly put salt around the cracked area and then linked the broken part back to its original position. After he held it firmly for a few minutes, the two parts were solidly reconnected.
That event led me to think about our mission from Jesus: to be the salt of the earth. Jesus wants us to be the connecting and reconciling power among people who are broken, who have forgotten or have never known the love of God. It’s the mission that Paul wrote of in 2 Corinthians: “God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ. . . . And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation” (5:19, NIV).

Thought for the Day
Through the power of Christ, I can help reconcile others to God.
O God, by your grace we commit ourselves to be the salt of the earth, to help bring together your family into one community under your love and care. Amen.
