Let your speech at all times be gracious
[pleasant and winsome]
seasoned [as it were] with salt
[so that you may never be at a loss]
to know how to answer anyone
[who puts a question to you]
Colossians 4:6 [AMPLIFIED BIBLE]
Gracious speech is kind and shows courtesy.
It is compassionate and polite
It is pleasant and sweet.
MY PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Dear Lord, today I want to focus on speaking graciously. I want to season my words with salt, so as to preserve them in people’s minds that they might cause a thirst for the truth of the gospel.
I want my speech to be gracious so that it might cause people to ask me about my faith and thus give me an opportunity to share the good news of the gospel with them.
- Anyone who loves a pure heart and gracious speech is the king’s friend.
Proverbs 22:11 [NLT]
- Jesus spoke graciously:
Everyone spoke well of him and was amazed by the gracious words that came from his lips. Luke 4:22 NKJV
- The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious,
