Our bodies are made for growth, multiplying cells the moment we come into being deep in our mother’s womb. Our minds grow the same way. Within just our first few years of life, we go from speaking one word to using thousands of words in complex conversation.
Growing our spirits isn’t as automatic, though. Spiritual growth is a decision, a conscious choice, an intention—and much of it comes through relationships.
Who will you surround yourself with? How you will you react to each interaction? Whose advice will you seek?
Over time, you may notice you have less need for the friend to party with, the friend to shop with, the friend to gossip with. You’ll always have space for them, you could fit them in if you wanted, but the need for them has dropped away. Instead, you yearn more strongly for a friend who brings you closer to God.
As we mature spiritually, our relationships change, progress, improve.
That is what this project, Everyday Salt, is to me: a virtual friendship of mutual blessings where everyone who partakes is encouraged in their faith, brought closer to God. Be it a millimeter or a lightyear, any closer to God is something to be celebrated.
