My husband was trying to teach the kids about salt today at the table to explain the meaning of salt in his language. He asked them if they remembered that the Bible said we are the salt of the earth. They did. So he asked them if they remembered what salt was for. Several of them mentioned taste, but he asked if they knew what else it was for, like back in the Bible times....
This time, it was my oldest, (who should have known better!) who scrunched his face up thinking and then popped up with the answer,
"I know! Fertilizer!!"
Umm... you are the fertilizer of the earth??
Somehow just doesn't bring up the same mental picture!
