Seasoned With Salt

2 Essential Elements of Christian conversation found in Colossians 4:6

Colossians 4:6 is a one-sentence guide to Christian speech.

“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”

Christ brought the comfort of grace and the "salt" of truth (John 1:17). That's why our words should be gracious, wholesome, and kind (Ephesians 4:29) and sprinkled with "salty" truth. 

"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot." Matthew 5:13

How do we add the salt?

When we’re given opportunity (Colossians 4:5), we let people know that we pray, seek God, read our Bibles, do what's honest, speak up for the unborn, hate immorality, and love people enough to share Christ with them. 


We’re compelled by Christ's love to share both His grace and His truth (2 Corinthians 5:11-21).
