The salt of the earth

In today’s Gospel lectionary Reading, Jesus says, “Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another. (Mark 9:50)”

We are called to be the “salt of the earth,” to season and preserve the world through godly lives. But let’s pay attention to how Jesus defines our “saltiness” in this passage: “have peace with one another.”

The world is made a better place as we cultivate healthy, loving relationships. Community, communion, is everything.
