Practice grace

Colossians 4:6 “Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.”

Leader, thsalt-1884166__340e pursuit of freedom of speech, which includes written communication, has for some reason also led to a disregard of people’s dignity – especially if they utter a contrary or different opinion. I bless you with saying what needs to be said, whether to compliment or correct, with boldness. I bless you with remembering that the recipients of your message do not lose their inherent value as human beings carrying the breath of God, just because they have erred or do not agree with you. I bless you with having your speech or written communication seasoned with grace, enhancing the flavour of your message as salt does to a well-prepared meal. I bless your words leaving people better than before, with their dignity intact.

Ephesians 4:29 “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.”
