By Don Ruhl

You will probably never be mentioned in the news, although you influence what goes on in the world more than anything else, and you preserve the earth more than the world will ever acknowledge and perhaps more than you know, for Jesus said,

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men” (Matthew 5.13).

If you walk with Jesus, following His teachings, you help give the earth flavor for the Lord and if you lose your seasoning ability, He will get rid of you. However, if you be as He was, you shall make sure that the earth shall continue to be here for a little while longer.


  • Do you live as Jesus teaches?
  • Do you know some people who are, “the salt of the earth”?
  • What makes them so?
