Tibetan Script Gospel Meditation – Mark 9:50

Mark 9.50 w B

Mark 9:50

“Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again?  Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

Salt gives good taste. If the saltiness has disappeared from our lives, we are no longer any good as disciples.

But let’s take note that salt was not just used for flavour. Salt was given a meaning by Jews, just as it still is in countries from India to Arabia, namely that the salt shared during a meal was a sign that host and guest have contracted to a peace that must not be broken. So Yeshu urges, “Be salty in your relationship with people.”
