Jesus taught about the powerful nature of influence, identifying His disciples as the “salt of the earth” and the “light of the world.”
Jesus indicates we are to make a difference.
He uses an interesting term, “If the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything…”
This word involves health, specifically good health.
When used in the context of the analogy and leadership influence, we find a powerful idea.
As leaders in the kingdom of God, our influence should be that which contributes to the spiritual health and well-being of others.
