Title: Please Pass the Salt


1
Please Pass the Salt
  • You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt
    loses its saltiness, how an it be salty again?
    It is no longer good for anything, except to be
    thrown out and trampled by men.
  • Matthew 513

The Facts, Please!
  • Table salt contains two elements, chlorine and
    sodium. It is known chemically as sodium
    chloride.
  • Only a small amount of salt is used for seasoning
    food. There are about 1, 400 other uses.
  • Long ago salt was so important and so scarce that
    it was used as money. In ancient Greece, slaves
    were bought with salt. When an owner was pleased
    with his slave, he said, He is worth his salt.
    We still use that phrase to say that someone is
    worthwhile. In Rome, soldiers received part of
    their pay in salt. This was called their
    salarium, from which we get our word salary.

More facts, please!
  • Salt is found in the oceans, in salt lakes, in
    salt springs, and in salt mines. In the ocean
    there are about four ounces of salt in every
    gallon of water. One sea, though, has nine time
    as much salt as that. The Dead Sea in Israel has
    11, 600,000,000 tons of salt!
  • In Bible times some of the salt collected from
    the Dead Sea lost its saltiness. Instead of
    being thrown away, it was stored in the temple in
    Jerusalem. It was spread on the marble
    courtyards when winter rains made them slippery,
    and people walked on it. Thats what the Bible
    means when it says salt that has lost its
    saltiness is trodden under the feet of men.

One more fact!
  • Long ago, when people signed an agreement, they
    ate some salt. It was a pledge of their
    friendship and faithfulness.
