You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.


What happens when you use some old salt and the flavour is gone? It is too awful for words. Today is the perfect time for you to do a salt check.

    * When was the last time that you smiled widely at someone?

    * What mood were you in when you left home today?

    * When you thought about cooking dinner, did you sigh?

    * Did you talk about the Lord to some dear heart this week?

    * What about your love level – is it up or down?

    * Can you speak to the dog without shouting?

    * How did you answer the last time you picked up the phone?

All these little areas expose your salt level. You need to keep topping-up with the Word of God and sharpening your attitude. You never know who is watching, or what your children and husband are thinking.

When my levels are fairly low or rather high, I find that I cry quite easily – my heart is truly sensitive to the Lord. But when everything is just cool, I handle it in my stride, with the Lord of course.

When the day is a little tough, keep smiling, and add salt to the atmosphere by praise to the Lord.
