The Salt

A reflection on our own value, as well as that of all others, as children of God.

Based on a portion of the text assigned for today’s Daily Office, Mark 9:49-50, in which Jesus encourages us to “have salt” in ourselves.

  1. Jon, This is such an important meditation during lent. We need to now our own value to see the value in others. I believe that much of the chaos in our culture today is people not knowing their own value. Thank you for this vivid reminder

      Lauren, Yes! It does seem to me that following Jesus’ mandate to “love others” requires us to “love” or “value” ourselves in the first place.

What do you think?
