Colossians 4:6 (Pt. 4)  Thought/Prayer:  Salt and Cellars.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Let your language be always seasoned with the salt of grace, so that you may know how to give every man a fitting answer.”  WEY (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

We see here that God can use the seasoning of salt to help us share Him with others.  But is there a certain technique here that is good to use?  How do we know how to use this “salt of grace,” worded here as picturesque in the Weymouth New Testament? 

Most of us think of shaking salt out of a shaker, particularly at meals when we want a bit of flavor enhancement for our mashed potatoes.  Or, in cooking, we may pour directly from a salt box for teaspoons or tablespoons of this substance.  For homemade play clay, we use cups of that white crystalline stuff. (And, on a really large scale, there are houses in New England called saltbox houses, called that from boxes in which salt was stored). 

But sometimes pouring salt makes a very salty stew.  And what about salt at the table?  Must it always come from a shakable little bottle?

No, there is one other older way of serving salt at the table:  old-time salt cellars.  These were little square glass creations that were placed at people’s table settings.  They had a round concave center for holding a small amount of salt – maybe a teaspoon or two.  When dining, individuals could just take a pinch of salt from the cellar and sprinkle it on food.  A very controlled method!  Be in control of your salt!

When we talk to someone about Jesus, maybe we should, in the back of our minds, keep the salt cellar in mind.  Yes, we are to speak of our Lord with salty words, but with just the right amount of salt for each individual.  Is someone asking outright for a relationship with Christ?  More salt there perhaps:  fill the shaker to the top.  But is someone timidly approaching the subject of salvation?  Maybe just a pinch or two is just right for easing into the subject.  God knows how much for sure.  He is the ultimate salt chef.

Lord, help us to pass on Your words and Your plan of salvation, as though sprinkling salt on our words . . . and the salt of grace on the person.  We trust You to tell us how much salt to use for each person; someone perhaps used just the right amount for us, when we were becoming believers.  We claim this for those we assist in ministry . . . help us help others by convicting us to stay close enough to You to know the salt to use, when and where and why.

Topics:  Pray for wisdom and for knowledge of other persons in order to determine the words to say to anyone seeking a little flavor of spiritual salt in their lives.
