Pass the salt please

Matthew 5:13, "Ye are the salt of the earth but if the salt have lost his savour wherewith shall it be salted it is thenceforth good for nothing but to be cast out."

Salt simply speaks for itself when it is poured out into portions that lack substance. As daughters and sons of the King, we are the salt in a bland world and stand distinctly from others. God entrusts us to use our anointing, gifts, talents, and blessings as He deems necessary. As salt of the earth, we don't have to go around saying who we are, people we encounter and have dealings with will know who and whose we are by our "substance." We have to use our salt in moderation and recognize the "favor of our flavor."  Everybody along your journey will not appreciate your salt and that's fine. We have to understand that "our salt" is an aquired taste and it won't set well nor be included into everyone's daily spiritual intake. As salt of the earth, recognize that there is power in being an "aquired taste."  The scripture teaches us that if we don't use our "salt" appropriately, it will lose its savor and not be beneficial to anyone including ourselves. I encourage you to cultivate and nurture your "salt" and find a balance that allows you to favorably use your "salt"  to bring savour to those who desire to feast on it.
