Discover and Become Everything God has Created You to Be!
One day when making oatmeal from an instant packet, I decided out of curiosity to read what the ingredients were. I was surprised to find salt as one of them. Up until then, I always thought of salt as something you put on french fries, meats, and fish. But why on earth would they mix salt with the other ingredients of an oatmeal packet?
You may also find that when baking cookies, the recipe will call for you to add a small amount of salt. Again this is puzzling; why would I add salt to something that is supposed to be sweet?
Well, it turns out that salt not only adds flavor to food, it actually enhances the flavor of the ingredients that it is mixed with. So, when you put salt in your cookies, it brings out the best of the other ingredients so that the cookies are that much more flavorful.
Likewise, Jesus calls us to not only sprinkle the world but to intermingle with it so that through God’s character and nature inside us, people’s best flavors (their personalities, character traits, and God-given gifts & abilities) will be brought forth and enhanced; making their lives more flavorful and desirable.
So go out into the world knowing you have been equipped by God to not only add flavor to the world but to also bring out the best in others and to help them become everything God has created them to be!
