Be salty!

People who follow Jesus stand out. Not all the time, perhaps. But eventually, they're going to have compassion when no one else does. At some point, they're going to have mercy when no one else will.

Jesus said you shouldn't try to blend in. He said you're worthless like that! Jesus wants you to stay salty, different from and helping the people around you. (See Luke 14:34-35.)

God, help us to be faithful to you and to stand out when we need to. Thank you. Amen.
