Salt – A Reflection

While singing holy scriptures I am often inspired to sing shorter scriptures in the form of a chant…While singing Luke the scripture verse about salt spoke to me…It goes like this and is found in Luke Chapter 14 verses 34-35…”Salt is good. But if the salt shall lose its savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither profitable for the land nor for the dunghill: but shall be cast out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” (Luke Ch. 14 Verses 34-35) Though this verse is short there is a lot that is unsaid here that causes many to ponder…What does it mean exactly? What are the meaning of the words? The meaning of the words are interspersed throughout the scriptures in both the old and new testament that shows the desolation and destruction that happens when many fall away from the ways of God and the message of Jesus Christ…In Luke Chapter 13 verses 34 and 35 Jesus laments this when he says…”Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killest the prophets and stonest them that are sent to thee, how often would I have gathered thy children as the bird doth her brood under her wings, and thou wouldest not? Behold your house shall be left to you desolate. And I say to you that you shall not see me till the time come when you shall say: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (Luke Ch. 14 verses 34-35) The promise of Jesus Christ is there for all who would have it but sad to say Jerusalem would not have it…Very sad…The promise is still there and today do we choose to hold onto the promise or do we say we won’t have it? For a time mankind is given a choice but terrible is the day when choice is removed and Jesus Christ returns as the just judge of mankind…Thank God that when what was done in the dark is being revealed we do not get to judge each other God alone is our just judge…Thank you for your follows likes and shares and with this post I added two more chants titled How Often and Salt and Luke Chapter’s 13 and 14…
