“Let every word you speak be drenched with grace and tempered with truth and clarity. For then you will be prepared to give a respectful answer to anyone who asks about your faith.” (Colossians 4: 6, the Passion Translation)
We can feel free to share what we believe in. We should be enthusiastic about the ideas that we trust and find healing. Our devotion to good is revealed in the way that we live our lives, contributing to the world in ways that are positive and helpful.
Let’s be sure then that our words are also in line with the ideals that we serve. Let’s be sure that we are neither too defensive nor too accusatory of others when we are asked about our spiritual beliefs. We can use this verse as a helpful guide.
Let grace drench your words. Allow that feeling of God’s Spirit, the gentle power of His own loving intention, be felt in what you say. This means we are speaking not from our heads, but from our hearts. We can be honest and clear, genuine and sincere.
As we do this, we are at the ready to offer thoughts that are clarifying and also respectful. We invite an exchange of ideas that can be healing to another and to ourselves as well. We can be ready and eager to learn, to listen, and to love.
