God gave us plants and animals as food but we cannot eat them without salt and here is something awesome, each of these food will taste differently when salt is added to them. Rice has a different taste from beans and beans has a different taste from yam despite being cooked with the same salt; Pork tastes differently from beef and beef tastes differently from mutton despite being cooked with the same salt too; the truth here is, each of these food substance has it’s own peculiar flavor but it is the salt that makes the flavor available and accessible for consumption. Now you know what it means to be the salt of the earth.
The earth and all that is therein is full of God’s goodness,
everything in the earth has a flavor-something good and profitable about it, simply because God made it.
Everything God made is good and God made us to bring out this goodness; God brings us to things and brings things to us because He wants us to bring out the goodness in these things.
We have the capacity to bring out the goodness in everything, no matter how rotten it is; we possess the ability to grow anything no matter how it looks, God brings whatever to us because He knows we possess the ability to bring out the goodness in it.
Running away from what looks terrible is running away from greatness through purpose fulfilment.
EVERY CONTENT OF THE EARTH HAS A MEASURE OF GOD’S GOODNESS IN IT AND GOD HAS MADE US A SALT TO BRING OUT THIS GOODNESS.
Fulfilling purpose is the path to prosperity without pressure and our purpose as the salt of the earth is to bring out the goodness of God in things around us.
EVERY TIME WE BRING OUT GOD’S GOODNESS IN A THING, WE’RE AUTOMATICALLY REWARDED WITH A MEASURE OF PROSPERITY. THAT UGLY THING AND SITUATION AROUND US IS OUR WAY OUT OF POVERTY INTO PROSPERITY.
LET’S STOP RUNNING AWAY FROM WHAT IS TO MAKE US GREAT, FOR WE WERE FORMED TO MAKE THINGS GREAT.
DESPISE NOT THE CRUST, THERE IS GOLD IN IT; RUN NOT INTO HIDING AT THE SIGHT OF THAT PROBLEM, YOUR PROFIT IS IN IT. FACE IT AND FREE THE GOODNESS OF GOD IN IT.
