Dead Sea

The dead sea is five times saltier than the ocean. Bathers can actually sit and read a book because of its high salt concentration. Though the dead sea is rich in minerals such as potassium and chloride, no living creature resides in it. Why? Because it has no outlet. When water gets in, it cannot get out leaving its minerals baking in the sun. We can say that the dead sea is a selfish body of water because it does not give out what it receives.

We can relate it to our own lives. We cannot really grow when we do not give back what has been given us. We will end up having unfruitful and empty lives. There is a time for everything. There is time for receiving and a time for giving.

I think the dead sea exists for us to know what happens if we do not share our blessings. I hope all of us will have the opportunity to visit the dead sea and see for ourselves that what we read in our books is really true.
