Ladies, today’s topic discusses having patience and endurance while going through life storms. Perhaps you are experiencing a heartbreak from a divorce or separation, or sorrow or sadness from a recent death of a loved one, or suffering from joylessness or unhappiness.
Have you been betrayed and are feeling loneliness and humiliation? Are you using asperity when communicating with difficult coworkers, friends or family members, or even Christians?
“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, and to be trodden under foot of men ~ Matthew 5:13.
Surely everyone knows salt is a food preservative and also enhances flavor in food. “It is recommended to consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day which is slightly more than one teaspoon of salt.” Despite health warnings the average consumption is at least twice the recommended daily intake.
Today’s topic is about spiritual S.A.L.T? In July, I was afforded an opportunity to speak at Legrand Church of Christ Women’s Day Program in Montgomery, Alabama. Their theme was “S.A.L.T.” (Sisters Abiding in Light and Truth). This is a great theme to dig deeper in the Bible to understand the importance of Christian women being light in a dark world.
“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace” ~ Exodus 14:13-14.
The Hebrews were found in the midst of being caught between transitioning from oppression to freedom, with a deep feeling of being trapped. Perhaps this is the most well-known story in the Book of Exodus.
