Today's Bible Verse: Colossians 4:6

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Seasoned With Salt

You may know Christians who haven't read this Bible verse, or so it seems by their ungracious, unsavory speech. Some haven't always practiced this virtue. But, if we truly want to grow spiritually, we'll begin to consider the spiritual flavor of our speech.

So, what does it mean to have our speech seasoned with salt? Salt enhances the natural taste of foods so that we want to eat more. It also makes us thirsty. Our speech ought to be fresh and inviting, full of spiritual flavor, causing others to be desirous, hungry, and thirsty to hear more.
