In his devotational book co-authored with Zig Zigler, pastor Ike Reighard proposes the S.A.L.T. principle:
See others as Jesus sees them.
Accept others as Jesus accepts them.
Love others as Jesus loves them.
Touch others as Jesus touches them.
This pithy acronym brings to mind the Messanic charge in Matthew 5:13-16 as enthusiastically espoused in the musical Godspell.
But Dostoyevsky’s views on love and even earlier St. Teresa of Avila’s prayer that “Christ has no body but yours” seem to have beat evangelist Reighard to the same point.
