Time well spent?

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.” – Jesus as recorded in Matthew 5:13

“Your danger and mine is not that we become criminals, but rather that we become respectable, decent, commonplace, mediocre Christians. The twentieth-century temptations that really sap our spiritual power are the television, banana cream pie, the easy chair and the credit card. The Christian wins or loses in those seemingly innocent little moments of decision.” Ray Ortlund H/T

  1. Amen brother. My favorite “salt” quote from Jesus is in Luke 14:35 talking about when we lose our saltiness that we are “…Neither fit for the land nor the dunghill [pile of feces], but men throw it out.”

    … I do believe that it’s the little things that lead to a life of mediocrity. No on wakes up and decides to live as a mediocre “christian” who only comes out on triple coupon Thursday… We do it little by little, with our every day decisions.

    Until eventually we are not “in the world” at all… so we can’t effect change in it.
