|I'm carrying this 3X5 card with me today.|
It's Friday morning. Linda and I are back from our conference, and some time with our families in Illinois.
I'm going to have oatmeal for breakfast. I'll put a pinch of salt in it. Just a little bit. It will make a difference. The salt influences the flavor in a positive way.
I want my life to make a difference, for Christ. This is my life purpose.
Jesus told his disciples,
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage."
- Matthew 5:13, The Message
How can I have salt-seasoning influence?
Don't try to be influential.
Focus all energies on my connection with Jesus, and be influenced myself.
The influence of Christ in me will salt the earth I walk on today.
