To Preserve

I think we all should be aware
That we all touch the lives
Of people all around us
In ways that might surprise

Some might be like pepper
Hot and full of zip
Others more like lemon
Sour words that nip

Some might burn like cinnamon
Some garnish like parsley
Some are sweet like sugar
Some are like rosemary

As a Christian I am called
To be salt of the earth
This spice has many uses
But one is to preserve

I am called to help you through
The roughest hours and days
To keep you through the storms
By building up your faith

Salt does not tear down or hurt
It only helps survive
May all who say they follow Christ
Be salt to others lives
