Salty or Sweet?

Tags: salty salt harsh

My husband and I differ in our snack choices; he's Salty, and I'm sweet. But we do come together when these two can combine, such as with yummy salted caramels.

In the spiritual world, salty and sweet often go hand-in-hand too. The Bible tells us not to lose our saltiness because we are the salt of the earth...but that should not be confused with "salty talk". We are told to have the salt of the spirit but to use sweet words when communicating with others. Mark 9:50 tells us to have salt in us so that we may be at peace with one another. 

Too often, we use Harsh words toward one another, when we should use words to edify the way God's word instructs us. God's word tells us that a kind answer turns away wrath, and in the same way, a harsh answer brings wrath. Angry words raise blood pressure and add stress to your body--and to the person your anger is pointed toward. Speaking kindly doesn't only make for better relationships, God tells us in Proverbs 16 that it is actually good for our own health. So make it a habit to speak kindly--it does a body good!

And next time you speak to someone, ask yourself if you're salty or sweet!
