After Jesus had dined with the Pharisees, he went his way and a great multitude of people followed Him. He told them many things and this was one of them in Luke 14: 34, 35 – “Salt is good; but if the salt has lost it’s flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” In Jesus’ time salt was often used as a catalyst for burning fuel such as cattle dung. The salt of the time was impure and could lose its strength over time, become useless, Jesus’ point is that the same is true of believers. Jesus warned that an ineffective commitment leads to being cast aside. Remaining useful to God means remaining faithful to Him.
