Wednesdays in the Word

"Salty" is the new adjective around my house.
My kids use it to describe when someone is "upset" or "annoyed" or "bitter."

The Bible has a lot to say about being salty. But, not using this definition. ; )

I like this verse:
"Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another." Mk. 9:50
Or as the footnote in my Bible says, we are to "allow the salt of the gospel to preserve us from selfish ambitions" so that we are at peace with other people. Amen!
How often do selfish ambitions trip us up?
Or maybe a better question is when don't they?

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves." Phil. 2:3

"For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice." Js. 3:16

Jesus said "If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all." Mk.9:35
