The hottest spice is believed to be the Red Savina Habanero pepper developed by GNS Spices of Walnut, California. A single grain will produce detectable heat in 1,272 pounds of bland sauce.

Is your good influence detectable in a crowd? Jesus spoke of influence in the Sermon on the Mount: “Ye are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost its savor…It is good for nothing but to be cast out” (Mt. 5:13, 14).

We are God’s “spice” to influence His world for good. There are two ways that we may influence others: by words and by deeds. People are more affected by what they see than what they hear. What do they see in your life and mine? Do they see devotion to Christ, shown by faithful attendance at Bible study and worship? Do they see someone truly striving to live like Christ, or do they see someone who is indifferent and compromising? Will God say to us on that final day, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” or will He say, “Depart from me, I never knew you” (Mt. 25:12)?
