This sweetest everyday necklace has been around for over 5 years. It’s outlasted so many other pieces because we all love it and I keep it in my bathroom to wear on the regular!
The necklace has a white druzy stone with just a tiny bit of sparkle and it’s inspired by Colossians 4:6, "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."
The context behind the verse is so rich. We find it towards the end of Colossians where Paul is talking about evangelism, about sharing the gospel to lead other people to Christ.
Paul says that evangelism is a work of prayer (4:2), it’s a work of clear communication (4:4), we need to use wisdom to make the most of every opportunity we’re given (4:5), and in Colossians 4:6 we see that it’s part of gracious speech.
He uses the imagery of salt to explain what our speech should be like. Salt is good for two things - it’s a preserving agent and it adds flavor. Through our speech we’re here to preserve the words of Christ and give them flavor. They should taste better than the world!
The Salt Necklace is a reminder of the power of our words, not just powerful because they can brighten someone’s day, but because they bring with them the truth of the gospel and ultimately that’s why we’re here. It’s the very best thing we can offer anyone - Christ’s truth.
I hope that you wear this dainty necklace and think about this verse; that we will all have gracious salt filled words as we communicate with everyone around us.
