Every grain offering you make is to be seasoned with salt; and you must not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be missing from your grain offering. Along with every offering of yours, you will present salt.
What does salt symbolize?
It has often been used as a preservative and an antiseptic.
Therefor it can symbolize permanence and cleanliness.
As Christians, we put into practice Christ’s words, “You are the salt of the earth,” when we share his message of ever-lasting life (Matt. 5:13).
We also have a “preserving” effect when we positively influence others through uncorrupted moral behavior.
Jesus also said, “Have salt in yourselves, and keep peace between one another,” (Mark 9:50).
In effect, today we do not make food offerings, but rather, we “offer to God […] the fruit of our lips,” (Heb. 13:15).
How do we add “salt” to our praise?
God’s word tells us the answer: “Let your utterance be always with graciousness, seasoned with salt, so as to know how you ought to give an answer to each one,” (Col. 4:6).
In other words, we ought to think before we speak and say things in a considerate manner.
“For God is well-pleased with such sacrifices,” (Heb. 13:16).
