How Should We Speak?

Colossians 4:6 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
This is a pretty good lesson on how we are to guard our speech.  Grace.  God's grace is unmerited favor or to put it simply, God's love even though we don't deserve it.  If we are to keep our conversations filled with grace I believe it means that we are to love those we are talking to...or about whether they deserve it or not.
We should speak respectfully even to those who do not show us the proper respect.  Even children appreciate being shown respect when we talk to them.  Jesus showed respect in His speech regardless of who He was talking to and he didn't talk down to them.  We are to follow the example of Jesus.  I know it is a struggle for me but thankfully I am growing a little in that area.
If we are to season our speech with salt I think this means we are to show our Christian faith as we speak.  Salt is a preservative.  Salt adds flavor.  Jesus preserves us and adds some flavor to our lives and we should share that as we speak to others.
Maybe it would be a good thing if we all spent time in the Bible and got some speech lessons from Jesus.
We have compiled an E-book of our devotionals in .pdf format. We will send them to you attached to an email.

We welcome questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
