You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its taste, it cannot be made salty again. Salt is useless if it loses its salty taste. It will be thrown out where people will just walk on it.
Salt preserves food - it stops it from rotting. This was particularly important in Jesus' time because they didn't have refrigerators - obviously. Christians help preserve lives by telling people about Jesus.
Salt also adds flavour to food. R.T. France said, Disciples, if they are true to their calling, make the earth a purer and more palatable place. He is basically saying that we make the planet a nicer place by bringing the love of Jesus to our communities.
If you're not living like and loving like Jesus, you're not really doing what God intended you to do. Have you been the salt of the earth this week, or are you just sand?
