Have you ever felt like a salt shaker? You know, passed around, never left alone, even turned upside down.

The thing is, salt in a shaker is useless. And the only way to make salt useful is for the shaker to get shaken.

“You are salt for the earth. But if salt loses its taste, how will it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people” (Matthew 5:13 God’s Word©).
