I read in Matthew 5, ‘You are the salt of the earth.’ I also read in a magazine that although we are advised to cut back on salt in food to keep our blood pressure low, we do need to have enough salt. The ideal is 6 g (one teaspoon ) per day. Not quite sure how we measure it as there is salt in much processed food. I never use salt in cooking, maybe I should.

It’s a matter of getting the quantities of salt correct. If we are to be the salt of the earth, can we ever be too much? We need to sprinkle ourselves in all ways under the direction of the Holy Spirit. May we not be salt which has lost its saltiness, but again nurtured by the Holy Spirit, be salt where we can be the most use.
