America has convinced us that to have purpose it has to be big, grand, and bring some kind of notoriety. We tend to think it’s all about being the owner of the company, the highest on the ladder, or even the one with the mostest in the bank. But what God has taught me is totally the opposite from that. Those things are not bad, in and of themselves; however, that is not where you’ll find your purpose.
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that
brings out the God-flavors of this earth.”
Did you get that? We are here to be granules of salt sprinkled about God’s incredible earth. Now a granule of salt is pretty small. Just think about how a teaspoon of salt can alter a dish or provide the perfect amount of seasoning for an awesome dessert.
When we live our lives sprinkling life’s salt-seasoning throughout our day, God-flavors fall on others. Those flavors can be found in kind words, small notes, car rides, baked cookies, smiles, or even sandwiches distributed to those who live on the streets.
Those things are not big and grand in America’s eyes, but they are a breath of encouragement into someone else’s life. The saying, it’s the little things that make a big difference, is so true!
Today, I’m going to purposefully send out thank-you notes and birthday cards as acts of salt-seasoning.
How will you be God’s seasoning today?
