Salt doesn’t taste very good on its own. It’s only really any good when it’s added to something else. So, when Jesus tells the crowd they are the salt of the earth, he wants them to flavor and preserve the world instead of keeping to themselves.
It’s time for us, the church, to heed Jesus’ words and enhance the flavors of the world.
Isaiah 58: 1-12
