One of the clearly understood demands of the people of God is that they do “good” (2896b) This is expressed literally.
(Psalms 37:27 KJV) Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.It is expressed in figurative terms.
(Matthew 5:13 KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.Part of the good is in our actions but there is another way we can “withhold” (4513). That is by withdrawing from out world. I have heard it said that salt in the shaker flavors nothing. We are the agents by which the Holy Spirit does His work. We can’t do that work hiding and avoiding involvement.
So? Join. Volunteer. Organize. There is much need for spiritual salt in our public square.
