Reflection: Salt

Here’s a reflection on salt inspired by Jesus’ teaching about salt in Matthew 5:13, Mark 9:50, and Luke 14:34-35. It was written by Roddy Hamilton and posted on the Mucky Paws website.

Salt
(inspired by Matthew 5:13, Mark 9:50, Luke 14:34-35)

Salt: to melt away the frozenness of God's People

To take what has been dulled
And add the flavour once more

Of tasting suffering in bread crumbs
As well as the heavenly banquet
Of tasting creation in a bite of apple
And the pain of it all

Of tasting the whole story of faith
In a glass of water

Bringing out the life
The fullness
The richness of what lies hidden
And letting the potential
Change us
Enthuse us
Delight us

Salt: melting away what has been frozen
And setting free the fullness
That energises our expectations
Once more
