Semi-Spiritual Sunday Snippet: Low-Sodium

Matthew 5:13.

Salt. Allegorical. Aspirational.

Gearing the Gospel assignment more personally in this morning's pew time, a worthwhile---maybe even preferable---spiritual substance substitution came to mind: Sugar.

Salt preserves and flavors, but sugar honeys, cheers and dissolves easily...making all the surrounding swirling sea sweeter for its presence.

Splenda may be the more desireable choice diet-wise, and to most tastebuds it serves a palate-pleasing purpose, but it is artificial. Acting upon your faith mandates authenticity.

So the next time you ponder hiding your light under a bushel, be the cup of sugar your neighbor needs---and make it a heaping one.
