Salt without limit

"salt without prescribing how much." Ezra 7: 22

For persons who suffer from high blood pressure, too much salt is a bad thing. But for those who read scripture, you will know that salt is a biblical metaphor for grace. Therefore a theological reading of the Ezra text is that King Artaxerxes promised to give Ezra the priest, grace without limit.

That's what God does he places no limits on the grace that He will give to you. "Ask and it shall be given to you."

A person may have too much money, or too much honor, but a person cannot have too much grace. More wealth brings more care, but more grace brings more joy. Increased wisdom is increased sorrow, but abundance of grace brings a spirit filled with joy.

Go to the throne of God for a large supply of heavenly salt: it will season your afflictions, it will preserve your heart, and it will kill the effects of your sins.

Everyone needs much salt: seek much and have much!
