50: “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves,) and be at peace with each other.” Mark 9:50 New International Version (NIV)
9:50 Jesus used salt to illustrate three qualities that should be found in His people. (1). We should remember God’s faithfulness, just as salt when used with a sacrificed recalled God’s covenant with his people. (Leviticus 2:13). (2) We should make a difference in the “flavor” of the world we live in, just as salt changes meat’s flavor. (see Matthew 5:13). (3) We should counteract the moral decay in society, just as salt preserves food from decay. When we lose the desire to “salt” the earth with the love and message of God, we become useless to Him. Life Application Study Bible NIV.
