The Dead Sea, bordering the countries of Israel and Jordan, is also located at the lowest point on Earth. The landscape is so barren, it looks like a moonscape. Not exactly a place for a vacation or rest stop.
And yet…did you know that one of the valuable things from that area is the vast amount of salt that rings this body of water? Besides the salt content, the minerals in the Dead Sea are valuable for everything from medicines to cosmetics. What initially looks like a terrible place is actually quite rich! In fact, resorts have popped up in the area.
Additionally, this salty sea is one body of water that won’t let you sink! Kind of like a Savior we know.
Matthew 5:13 says, “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.”
Sometimes people think the Gospel is difficult to present. It can be thought of as unattractive or cumbersome; the Bible tells us as much.
And yet, it has infinite value to us, and preserves life! Remember that the next time you hesitate to share Christ with someone.
Lord, help us change our perspective when it comes to the great privilege we have in sharing the Good News about Jesus. Amen.
