The Yellow Bag

Laid (55/180)

One of my favorite snacks is a small bag of Lay's Classic potato chips.  I especially like them during a busy night at work.  My nickname for them is "yellow bag," and now my co-workers
call them that as well.

I love their simplicity,  a plain yellow chip with simple flavors.
It is not only impossible to "eat just one" of these treats, it is impossible to eat the bag without something to drink.  Their saltiness naturally makes one thirsty.

The Scriptures tell us that we are the "salt of the earth."  As such, by our words, our lives, our actions, we cause others to thirst for the "living water" of the Lord Jesus.

We don't all need to be preachers or teachers, sometimes we can just offer a simple smile, a kind word or a gracious attitude. These attributes of the Holy Spirit in us are the things in us which help to draw others to the Lord.

Matthew 5:13
"Ye are the salt of the earth."

John 7:38
"He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, 
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
