Connecting local responses around the world
Colleagues, participants, human beings to appropriately understand, there must be dialogue; for change to be sustainable, significant, and quantum there must be a change in mind-set…the old way of doing thing begs for change…how timely this salt visit.
In the Arab countries, an agreement was sealed with a gift of salt to show the strength and permanence of the contract: In the book of Matthew, 5:13 (a book in the Bible) believers are called “the salt of the earth”. Let the salt you use each day remind you that you are now one of God’s covenant people who actively help preserve and purify the world.
Salt is a good symbol of God’s activity in a person’s life, because it penetrates, preserves and aids in healing. God wants to be active in your life. Let Him become part of you, penetrating every aspect of your life, preserving you from the evil all around and healing you of your sins and shortcomings.
Our mind-set, correct or incorrect, are the sources of our attitudes and behavior and ultimately our relationship with others; be reminded that for every thousand roughly cutting away at the leaves of evil (manipulation, vindictiveness, envy, greed, selfishness…) there is one striking at the root, that one is “The Voice Of One-Overcomers Club”; this salt has not lost its flavor, therefore it shall not be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
In conclusion to this contribution know for a fact or preferably a principle, if we continue trying to change outward attitudes and behaviors we will continue to fail; we have to thoroughly examine the basic mind-set from which those attitudes and behaviors flow.
