“The people of the city said to Elisha, “Look, master, this city is a nice place to live as you can see. But the water is so bad the land cannot grow crops.”
Elisha said, “Bring me a new bowl and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. Then he went out to the spring and threw the salt in it.
He said, “This is what the LORD says: ‘I have healed this water. From now on it won’t cause death, and it won’t keep the land from growing crops.’” So the water has been healed to this day just as Elisha had said.” – 2 Kings 2:20-22


Salt kills crops, right?

I looked it up. It was one of the first recorded biological weapons enemies would use against each others.

God’s ways are not our ways, are they?

Ever come through some salty circumstances, situations where it all looked great until you drank the water?

“You meant to hurt me, but God turned your evil into good to save the lives of many people, which is being done. So don’t be afraid. I will take care of you and your children. “So Joseph comforted his brothers and spoke kind words to them.” – Genesis 50:20-21

Will those salty circumstances make you bitter or better?
