Writing for The Seattle Times, Moira MacDonald said this about a new movie—“The Hero begins with Sam Elliott’s character, a veteran actor, reading a voice-over about barbecue sauce, and that’s when it hit me: Sam Elliott’s voice is barbecue sauce. Pour it on any movie—and oh, that voice does pour, in thick velvety drops—and it tastes better.”
In the same way, our influence should make people’s lives taste better. Jesus says that we are the salt of the earth. In part that means that we add flavor to people’s lives as we permeate the world in which we live.
As wonderful as Sam Elliott’s voice is, it pales in comparison to the voice of Jesus as we speak his truth into the lives of those around us!
“You are the salt of the earth…”—Matthew 5:13.
“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”—Colossians 4:6.
