Growing up my dad did a lot of the cooking – well, he did the memorable cooking. You know the grander things. Mom, myself and my brothers – we did the every day kind of food. The simple easy breezy get yourself something to eat kind of dishes.

Oh but when dad got in the kitchen – it became a show. The chopping, the dicing, the sauteing, the simmering – all the right spices mixed together in just the right amount, He would talk about how you had to have just the right amount of each one – especially when it came to salt – to make the dish spectacular.

With too little – the meal would be unmemorable and our friends would leave unsatisfied, and with too much – their lips would swell up, while the next day – their fingers would look like bloated little sausages – and no – it’s not easy to get them back over for dinner when this happens.

As I sit here and think, while laughing at the fun memories – my mind goes to Jesus – thinking about how He described us as the “salt of the earth” and just like those dishes dad made, we also need to ensure we’re consciously and faithfully seasoning the world where we live,

Too little and those around us will leave glad to have seen us yet still feeling unsatisfied in their souls – too much and they’ll be ran off – leaving us very little chance for a second chance – to share His love with them.

Yes sweet friends – we are called, each and every one of us – to bring out His very flavors to those we encounter, and yes, we’re responsible for the taste we leave them with – and as always – it all comes back to love.

That unconditional – in spite of and never because of kind of love – for yes – we are the salt of the earth.

So with this as our mindset – I have to say – come on now – let’s get cookin’ !

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13-14
