Keep on praying and guard your prayers with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray for us also. Pray that God would open a door for the word so we can preach the secret plan of Christ—which is why I’m in chains. Pray that I might be able to make it as clear as I ought to when I preach. Act wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Your speech should always be gracious and sprinkled with insight so that you may know how to respond to every person. (Colossians 4:2-6, CEB)
Your speech should always be gracious and sprinkled with insight…
I know I struggle with this. We need to be gracious in everything we say.
Our lives should show forth the wonders of God’s love in everything we do and say. So our comments should always be gracious and inspired by God. Do not succumb to the flesh and speak with an evil tongue. But be gracious in every way.
Speaking truth in love and spreading joy and hope through your actions and your words.
Loving People. Loving God.
