DONT LOOSE YOUR SALT!!!
5Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.6Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
4: 5 In our increasingly secular world, Christians may become more and more in the minority. Paul and other believers in the early church faced a similar situation as part of a small, new movement in the Roman Empire. Paul suggests that we need to be alert and smart, looking for opportunities to tell others about Christ. We should be more loving and creative than ever before in our interactions with nonbelievers, making the most of our opportunities to share Christ’s love. Look for opportunities this week to show Christ’s love to others; then be alert to when God prompts you to move from showing his love to them to verbally sharing it.
4: 6 When we tell others about Christ, kindness counts! No matter how much sense the message makes, we lose our effectiveness if we are not courteous. Just as we like to be respected, we must respect others if we want them to listen to what we have to say. “Seasoned with salt” means that what we say should be “tasty” and should make people thirst for further dialogue.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure you always treat others as CHRIST would and NEVER LOOSE YOUR SALT!!
