"Ye are the Salt of the Earth"
“Why did the Savior compare His disciples to salt? What does it mean to be the salt of the earth? What do we know about salt? You could try making a Family Home Evening treat with and without salt. Is there a difference? Salt preserves as well. Meat is often preserved with salt. Can this be applied to the Savior’s message. The Savior also said “Salt that has lost its savor is good for nothing.” Did you know that really the only way salt can loose its savor is when it is contaminated by other elements? Sometimes, because salt held so much value, merchants would add other things to salt and then sell it to unsuspecting customers. What things are added to our lives that make it hard for us to savor the words of our Savior. Who would want us to become contaminated? How can we be purified again? As you discuss this analogy with your family, prayerfully consider the message the Lord has for you. How can you apply “salt” to your life?
