Matthew 5:13

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

Salt in Scripture

There are many references to salt in the Bible as a positive component in what it means to be a Christian in a world that has lost its flavor.  Many scriptures can be found relating to salt with many associated with holy sacrifice and offerings that are acceptable to G-d. 
Here are few scripture references salt that you may want to reflect on as they may connect with anger:

Mark 9:49-50 - "For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”
Luke 14:34 - “Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored?"
Mark 9:49 - "For everyone will be salted with fire."
Job 6:6 - " Can that which is tasteless be eaten without salt, or is there any taste in the juice of the mallow?"
Ezra 6:9 - "And whatever is needed—bulls, rams, or sheep for burnt offerings to the God of heaven, wheat, salt, wine, or oil, as the priests at Jerusalem require—let that be given to them day by day without fail,"

Bible Reading

This site is meant to be encouraging for you to explore your own beliefs and not to force one perspective onto everyone.  You will find some anger associated verses from the Bible have been noted from the Old (pre-Jesus' birth) and New (Jesus' birth onward) Testaments for you to use for reflection and transformative change.  These are not exhaustive and should be read within the larger context of that Bible book or chapter. 

For each verse please take a moment to read the selected passage and consider how that learning may (or may not) align with your own Christian (or non-Christian) beliefs.   Please note that (with the exception of Bible quotations) the insertion of the - in lieu of "o" is meant to convey respect for readers who will not be comfortable with that word denoting the Divine.
