"HAVE SALT IN YOURSELVES"

Immediately following his presentation of the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount, Christ Jesus said to his disciples (Matt. 5:13), "Ye are the salt of the earth." In Bible times salt was used not only to make food taste better, but also as a preservative and to sanctify the food offered to the Lord. Salt also came to be a symbol of the most sacred and binding obligations.

It might be said that Jesus used the word "salt" in one of its highest significations. When the disciples had partaken of the spiritual essence of Truth and Love, they would be consecrated to the divine purpose and devoted to the establishment of Truth in their own lives, in order that they might then prosper the lives of others.
