Remind others of the covenant God offers

Ed M.’s devotional today, based on Lev 2.13, reminds us from the Old Testament background that salt has to do with covenant. That puts a new spin on verses like this one:

Today believers are to be “the salt of the earth,” Matthew 5:13a. They are to remind others of the presence of God, of His covenant He offers to them. This is only possible when we have salt in us.

Focus question: What are the terms of God’s covenant for me as a part of his people? How do those terms project me into the midst of the uncommitted world?

What say you?
