Today is Be An Angel Day and the perfect time to talk about grace. Here's a short article I wrote a while back. We can be an angel to those we meet by following this advice today and always. Let Your Speech Be Always With Grace “Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.” Colossians 4:6 God knows the heart of every man and in that heart is a different way of looking at the world. We may not always be able to see things as others do, but we have one powerful verse that tells us what we can do to be effective when we communicate with every man. God tells us to let our speech be always with grace. Giving grace allows us to forgive and forget a wrong, a word spoken in haste, a misunderstanding, a poor choice of words on someone else's part. How many times have we said (or wanted to say) something harsh to someone because we thought they “done us wrong” only later to find out it was a misunderstanding on our part? Weren't you glad you didn't? Or didn't you wish you had shown them grace? The Lord tells us that our communication default mode should be grace. Grace-filled communication allows us to share our hearts with other hearts that we don't totally understand. Being gracious, even when we don't feel it is justified, allows us to reach out, to lift up, to support, to share our hearts, to educate, to inform and to save face. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ If you liked this post, read…Seven Reasons Why YOU Should Sign Up for the Art of Eloquence Newsletter!
