"Jim Bramlett's stories of sharing Jesus while shopping and David Robinson's Usefulness of Salt"
post about your experiences sharing your faith with others while
shopping is a beautiful testimony of what this other post was I think
highlighting when talking about the preserving nature of salt in the
earth. The link takes you to a farmers magazine that speaks of the
actual usefulness of salt in even a dunghill because of the way that
salt changes the reaction of certain properties for the better to
produce good soil. It even quotes Jesus where He spoke of salt that
loses its savor being unfit for the dunghill etc. They explain what
that is all about.
Well I just loved the connection
between that and your stories because you have demonstrated what being
salt is all about. It's being ready always to give an answer for the
hope that is in you and having a faith that produces living waters
flowing from your innermost being unto a thirsty world that desperately
needs God's loving visitation; preserving what is good and allowing the
good soil to grow good fruit. It's being "prayed up" and joyfully going
wherever the Spirit leads with expectation to be used how He sees fit.
May God grant us all more of this in our daily lives!
