Salty enough? Love without truth is unpredictable, often taking us places we shouldn’t go. On the other hand, truth by itself can be offensive. Spoken without love, it can turn people away from the truth. When truth and love are combined in a human heart, however, we have what Jesus called “the salt of the earth,” able to bring out the beauty of our faith.
Think about it. Jesus tells us that we must have “salt in” ourselves to “be at peace with each other.” We need to first combine some spiritual ingredients within our hearts to give ourselves to family, friends, even our enemies, in peace.
God’s Word tells us: “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” (Mark 9:50).”
We need to be willing to both share our faith with others while possessing a willingness to make a difference in a world bent on hating, destroying and blocking the love of God. Make it your passion to possess the truth and love. Become a great lover by possessing the most powerful force on the face of the earth, truth and love combined.
“Lord, let us be Your salt and light in this world. Empower us by Your Spirit to live in obedience and faith. Let our words and actions have a great impact on those around us, and use us to draw people to You rather than away from You. Help us each day to live in the hope that we are salt and light. In Jesus name, Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34). www.thispassingday.com
