“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltiness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.” -Matthew 5:13
God created us for a purpose and when we stop living for that purpose we are like tasteless salt – adrift and without purpose. Without God’s love and plan for our lives, we allow the world to fill our heart with unsavory and empty desires that only lead us further away from Him. God’s Word says “guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it” (Proverb 4:23).
Instead of filling our life and heart with meaningless actions, try to include God in every moment of every day. He is always with us even when we forget about Him. So instead of mindlessly going through our daily routines we should include Him in everything we do.
At work worship and praise Him in all you do. Be God’s light to those around you. Spread God’s joy to every person you meet. Praise Him in your home, talk and pray to Him while you drive, include Him in all you do. Everything about your day is important to Him! And by including Him in your day-to-day actions you are spreading that love He gave freely to those around you.
Jesus, let everything I do be for Your purpose and not mine. Keep me from becoming tasteless salt. Use me, and fill my life with the joy of your love and forgiveness so I can shine with Your love and hope.
