Salt

Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you.

           You are the salt of the earth;
          but if salt has lost its taste,
          how can its saltiness be restored?  

                   â€”Matthew 5.13

Your salt is kindness.
Let all you do be salted with love.

Don’t leave your faith unsalted.
Don’t lose your love for anything else.

Be the salt of every moment,
releasing the flavor of grace.

Let love be what preserves,
what honors, what keeps.

Honor the grit of your salt,
the courage to seek justice.

Let the salt of your mercy
melt the ice of injustice.

Let your prayer be an epsom salt bath
in the kindness of God.
