"Salt of the Earth" - Collectors Club, January 2022
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13, AMP.
Salt: Can be an agent used to purify or cleanse, thereby bringing impurities to the surface so that they can be dealt with and removed. Although salt appears minuet, it is a key ingredient that is needed to add, giving it a robust flavor.
The Bowl: Is a vessel that is crafted in the Potter’s hands. The bowl represents the temple of our beings to carry the pure nature of salt in our own lives.
Monarch: Represents transformation and new life. This is a reminder that we are to represent Christ in the world, a carrier of “the salt” at work within us.
Blueberries: Often can signify modesty, as berries can be found hidden under a covering of leaves. They also represent gentleness and sincerity, such as how we are to be in our posture and approach to others.
Berries are rich and vibrant in color, which embody the evidence of Christ at work. They also signify authenticity and character that has been made mature. One may note that berries and salt are similar in function, in that they both act as agents to heal and aid in recovery.
As you reflect on this painting, I pray your new year is filled with abundant fruit, being purified from the past season and bringing life into the NEW.
