Abundant Salt

"up to one hundred talents of silver, one hundred kors of wheat, one hundred baths of wine, one hundred baths of oil, and salt without prescribed limit." - Ezra 7:22 -

Salt was used in every offering made by fire unto the Lord.

The preserving and purifying properties of salt is the grateful emblem of divine grace in the soul.

When king Artaxerxes gave salt to Ezra the priest, he set no limit to the quantity.

When the King of kings distributes grace among His royal priesthood, the supply will not be cut short by Him.

The Lord God is always gracious to His people.

He who chooses to gather much manna will find that he may have as much as he desires.

Some things in the economy of grace are measured.

But the salt of grace is given abundantly.

A man may have too much money, or too much honour.

But he cannot have too much grace.

There is no fear of a man becoming too full of grace.

More wealth will bring more care.

But more grace will bring more joy.

Increase in wisdom may bring in more sorrow.

But abundance of the Spirit is fullness of joy.

Let us go to the throne for a large supply of heavenly salt.

It will season our afflictions.

It will preserve our hearts from corruption.

It will kill our sins.
