Tasteless Salt – my not so Valentine’s Day thoughts… ;)


“You are salt for the earth. But if salt loses its taste, how will it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people.”(Mt 5:13)

From the Words of Jesus, I’ve heard few Sundays ago in church… And no (sadly) -not always the words will stick in my head for the next day even, let alone few weeks. This time it did. Somehow I’ve discovered that it can have tremendous meaning even for atheists.
We are the salt for the earth. Our lives, in their cores, all have sense. All are important. We’re put on this earth to be meaningful. One priest that I greatly respect, said once something (and that was over 20 years ago!) in his homily: do not ever say your life is worthless or meaningless. You never know, if one day walking to work, you smile to someone in passing. Someone who was at the bottom of  his life, desperately searching for a sign that the life is not all bad and cruel… Who knows, that little smile of yours could have made his day…

But to be that salt… Imagine being that spice in someone’s life, that changes everything for better. Your smile, a hug, a good word. Little things.
Bigger ones as well. We’re not to be the ones to “go with the flow”. Have our own “moral spine”, and know how to defend it… To truly Love people doesn’t mean to agree for everything and anything they do…

Just not let your life to become tasteless… but if you do notice it – go back. Back to what makes sense, what makes you – you; the unique, beautiful person you really are… 🙂
