Why does Jesus want us to be “salt of the earth”?

 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13

            Salt is a preservative.  Look at the ingredients on canned and frozen foods – sodium.  Sodium/salt keeps items in their original state longer.  Salt is also a flavoring, enhancing the taste of food.

            Jesus asked us to be preservatives in a culture that is spoiling itself rotten.  We are to preserve those godly traits while the world tries to deteriorate.  We should also be a flavoring to this world, enhancing life and leaving people with a good taste of Christianity in their hearts.
