On Saltiness

Of all the flavors of all the world

Jesus told us that we are salt.

Not to have salt, not to become salt, not even that we have salt

but that we are salt.

We are salt, and with that salt comes flavor.

Our flavor is in the doing,

the talking, the loving,

the being in the world in a way no other can be.

There is no salt substitute, like sugar

and who wants to be sugar anyway?

Sugar is delicious and sweet

but sweet is not our flavor.

Our flavor brings out the real flavor in everything

and while too much can be overpowering

Just enough makes it perfection.

Be salt.
