In Jesus' time, salt had many uses. It gave luminosity to a lamp when added to oil, prevented food from spoiling, and was sprinkled on sacrifices.
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures counsels, "Let us watch, work, and pray that this salt lose not its saltness, and that this light be not hid, but radiate and glow into noontide glory." (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 367)
You are significant. Salt is a preserver and purifier. So are you. Salt adds spice, interest, and a kick. So do you. You are the salt of the world!
"Every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it?
Have salt in yourselves..." Christ Jesus
