FC: SALT | Written and Photographed by Kathy Dunkin | Information from Wikipedia and Bible Gateway

1: Salt, also known as table salt, or rock salt, is a mineral that is composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of ionic salts. It is essential for animal life in small quantities, but is harmful to animals and plants in excess. | SALT | Written by Kathy L. Dunkin | Information from Wikipedia and Bible Gateway

3: Table Salt is one of the oldest, most ubiquitous food seasonings and salting is an important method of food preservation. The taste of salt (saltiness) is one of the basic human tastes. | Salt has several purposes. Two of them are to add flavor and for preservation of food. What does that mean for Christians when Jesus tells us that we are to be salt? FLAVOR: people desire the taste, brings out the natural flavor of foods. PRESERVATION: keeps food from spoiling, keeps food fresh, holds in the healthy vitamins, saves food for later.

4: FLAVOR People desire the taste Brings out the natural flavor of foods

5: People desire the taste and so restaurants, and even fast food places, have salt available. It is available and visible. | Salt brings out the natural flavor. | Salt is bringing out the flavor, enhancing the natural flavor.

6: FLAVOR People desire the taste Brings out the natural flavor of foods

7: "As people, we desire salt to the point of over indulging. Salt is very important to our health. It regulates the liquid balance in our bodies and signals our nervous system. Too much salt can raise our blood pressure and overload our heart and other organs." | As followers of Christ, we are to be the salt of the world: People desire Him but often don't know Him People need Him but often don't realize what is missing As salt, we are to introduce others to Jesus, what He means to us, His faithfulness, His love, His sacrifice, His wisdom, His holiness.

8: Gentle | Reflective | Humorous | Joyful | Studious | Artistic | As salt, we are to bring out the natural flavor. Salt does not change the flavor nor make a new flavor. It brings out the flavor that is already there. So, with each person, their own personality will come through as your saltiness becomes evident.

10: "You are the salt of the earth. Matthew 5:13a NLT

11: Chloride and sodium ions, the two major components of salt, are needed by all known living creatures in small quantities. Salt is involved in regulating the water content (fluid balance) of the body. The sodium ion itself is used for electrical signaling in the nervous system.

12: Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? You must have the qualities of salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other.” Mark 9:50 NLT | Live in peace | Bring out the natural flavor | To bring out the natural flavor of a person, we must first accept him or her as a person who is loved by God.

13: Available | Visible

14: Caribbean Sea Salt

15: Salt for human consumption is produced in different forms: unrefined salt (such as sea salt), refined salt (table salt), and iodized salt. It is a crystalline solid, white, pale pink or light gray in color, normally obtained from sea water or rock deposits. Edible rock salts may be slightly grayish in color because of mineral content. | VISIBLE AVAILABLE FLAVORFUL

16: While people have used canning and artificial refrigeration to preserve food for the last hundred years or so, salt has been the best-known food preservative, especially for meat, for many thousands of years. | Preserve Life. Isn't that what JESUS does? As His SALT, we are to do the same. | USED FOR FOOD PRESERVATION FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS


18: PRESERVATION Keeps food from spoiling Keeps food fresh Holds in the healthy vitamins Saves food for later | JESUS keeps our lives from spoiling. But what about friends who don't know Him? | Life is new each day with the LORD - fresh. What about those who don't know HIM? | Healthy Vitamins Who knows what is healthy for each of us better than the Creator? How do non-believers learn what is healthy? | JESUS is the One who saves. HE saves us, not only for later, but for eternity.

19: Why do we wait? Why are we afraid? We MUST be the salt, as JESUS has commanded.

20: Different natural salts have different mineralities, giving each one a unique flavor. Fleur de sel, a natural sea salt from the surface of evaporating brine in salt pans, has a unique flavor varying from region to region. In traditional Korean cuisine, so-called "bamboo salt" is prepared by roasting salt in a bamboo container plugged with mud at both ends. This product absorbs minerals from the bamboo and the mud. | UNIQUE FLAVORS | Organic Salt | Bamboo Salt | Rock Salt...not Edible

21: Hawaiian Bamboo-Jade Sea Salt | Each one of us is unique. The Lord knows this and expects us to be unique in our flavor of salt.

22: RAW SALT is BITTER RARELY EATEN | Have you ever gone swimming or surfing in the ocean? How did the water taste? Most people do not like the taste of salt water. It has a bitter taste because it is raw, nothing has been done to it. Are we bitter as salt or do we bring out the flavor of Christ and the individual? Are we raw or have we been processed by our Lord?

23: Completely raw sea salt is bitter because of magnesium and calcium compounds, and thus is rarely eaten.


25: Refined salt, which is most widely used presently, is mainly sodium chloride. Food grade salt accounts for only a small part of salt production in industrialized countries (3% in Europe) although worldwide, food uses account for 17.5% of salt production. The majority is sold for industrial use. Salt has great commercial value because it is a necessary ingredient in many manufacturing processes. A few common examples include: the production of pulp and paper, setting dyes in textiles and fabrics, and the making of soaps and detergents. | S A L T W A T E R

27: Salt can be obtained by evaporation of sea water, usually in shallow basins warmed by sunlight; salt so obtained was formerly called bay salt, and is now often called sea salt or solar salt. | Is Sea Salt Important? by Brian Larson on April 13, 2011 in Bo Larson,Metabolism,Nutrition,Prevention,Toxins,Weight Loss,Wellness By definition Sea Salt is produced by the evaporation of sea water which contains sodium chloride and trace elements like sulfur, magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium and iron. Components of Sea Salt: Sodium – necessary for life; helps muscle contraction & expansion, nerve stimulation, proper function of adrenals and other biological processes. Chloride – helps produce the acids needed to break down protein and enzymes for carbohydrate digestion, and necessary for proper brain function and growth. Magnesium - produces enzymes, nerve transmission, bone formation, tooth enamel and much more. | The Dead Sea: Salt can be seen from the ground and the air.

28: LOT'S WIFE: DISOBEYED Looked Back and Turned into Salt

29: In the Hebrew Bible, thirty-five verses mention salt,[one of which being the story of Lot's wife, who, according to the legend, was turned into a pillar of salt when she looked back at the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:26) as they were destroyed. When King Abimelech destroyed the city of Shechem, he is said to have "sown salt on it," probably as a curse on anyone who would re-inhabit it. (Judges 9:45) The Book of Job contains the first mention of salt as a condiment. "Can that which is unsavory be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?" (Job 6:6) | KING ABIMELECH Threw Salt On Land as a CURSE | FLAVOR WITHOUT SALT?

30: Whose life are you touching? Are you salt or flavorless salt?
