A SALTY WARNING

5 Daily Devotional Friday

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men” (Matthew 5:13).

There are sobering insights to be found in the nuances of the verbal phrase, “become tasteless.” The tense, voice, and mood indicate that this state of being can be traced to a moment of inception, resulting from no outside force acting upon you, and whether or not this condition occurs depends solely upon the individual. Only by continuing in the faith is one’s faith proved out.
