Blessing and seasoning go together. “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored?” asks Jesus. (Matthew 5:13)
What is a blessing but a reminder that God is with us on our earthly pilgrimage, not merely for company but for purpose.
Be salt. Offer a taste of God to the world around you, even today, here in this place.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
