Colossians 4:6 Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.
The secret to any good dish is putting just the right amount of salt in it, to give it that added flavor.
When we speak to others we ought to season our speech with grace, to prevent it from hurting the person with whom we’re communicating.
There is no standard measure of salt for any dish, chefs usually average the amount for each of their creations. In the same way when we speak we may need to be a bit more gracious with some persons than others.
Remember God shows us abundant mercy and grace.
We need to pattern him and do the same with the people we encounter.
