I found this very enlightening.
*Salt -VS- Rice*
If you were to cook 3 cups of rice, would you add 3 cups of salt to it?
I certainly hope not!
So, in every preparation of rice, the rice always *outnumbers* the salt, yet a little salt makes a *huge difference/impact* in the overall outcome.
In the room in which you currently are, look up at the ceiling… Yes, I said look up!
What is the size of the bulb compared to the size of the room? In the room from which I typed this, my guesstimate is probably a ratio of 1:5000.
Yet, *darkness flees* the entire space once the small bulb is *flipped on*.
If I am the salt of the earth, and the light of the world (Matthew 5:13-14, NLT), then “little me” has the ability to make big things happen.
Sometimes, because we feel *outnumbered or overwhelmed at the sheer magnitude of evil or wrong-doers*, we then choose powerlessness, and decide to go with the flow, not standing up for what we believe is right.
Stop it! Little doesn’t mean insignificant.
You are *significant*. Your presence should make a *BIG* difference. Stop waiting to be on the side of the majority. They may be the majority, but they are the *trivial majority*, and you are the *impactful minority*.
They are the *rice of the world*, and you are the *salt of the world*.
They are the *room*, and you are the *light*.
Make your influence felt!
Matthew 5:13 (TLB) says:
“You are the world’s *seasoning*, to make it *tolerable*.”
