Day-by-Day – Day 69 – Conversations


~Colossians 4:6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Our conversations should be different than the conversations of the unbelievers. How can we know exactly what is meant by this verse?  God’s Word is quite detailed and Paul has given us so much to go on.

Here are some examples of worldly speech and what the Word of God says about it:

  • Loud and boisterous
  • Interfering in another’s affairs

~1 Thessalonians 4:11a Study to be quiet, and to do your own business

  • Stories based on unsubstantiated “facts”

~Titus 2:8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

  • Liars

~Ephesians 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

  • Filthy language

~Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

  • Language filled with anger and malice/revenge
  • Words that cut another person down

~Colossians 3:8  But who ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

As we do moral inventory of our Christian walk, let us strive to follow Paul’s exhortations.
