Does Your Life Have The Flavour You Want It To Have?

THE SALT OF THE EARTH

My recommendation is to do whatever things make you feel happy and to do them as long as possible every day! Loving the quality moments of your life, rather than pursuing a long and miserable one.

At the age of 81 my father was told by his doctor to stop eating salt that it was bad for him and that if he wanted to live a long life he should stop. As a child growing up I remember my Dad saying the phrase multiple times “lashings of salt” when it came to eating his “dripping and cake” or his “fish and chips.”

It seemed to me that my dad loved the flavouring that salt gave to his life and that when he was put on a “healthy regime” of no salt his life lost some of its joy to him. It wasn’t long after this that he left us.

Jesus said Matthew 5 v13: “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot!”
