I’m flavored …

Like salt to food … I was thinking that what I say and what I do is infused and flavored by what’s on the inside of me.

I can say, I can sing, I can do … but what’s on the inside of me is what is infusing and flavoring even the very things that God is doing/giving through me.

Like rusty water. I can drink the water, it having in it all the potential benefits of water, but it be highly distasteful & maybe even toxic.

Or like arsenic in the water … could drink it, having all the potential benefits of water, but kill me.

I am saying, “Lord, help me to really get this. That every word, every action I take is infused with what is REALLY happening in me. It is what it is. No matter if anyone knows it or not. It is what it is. Clean me up from the inside out so I taste like You, with the same benefits, as You”.

James 3:10-12    ” …  A spring doesn’t gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it? Apple trees don’t bear strawberries, do they? Raspberry bushes don’t bear apples, do they? You’re not going to dip into a polluted mud hole and get a cup of clear, cool water, are you?” MSG
