Relationships Are Everything [Colossians 4]
6Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
Colossians 4 concluded Paul's letter to the Colossians. In these last 18 verses, Paul mentions 9 individuals by name, as well as, some personal information concerning each of them. He also refered to the church of the Laodiceans, the brethren at Hieropolis and the church that meets at Nympha's home. Paul's words reflected God's heart of love for people. He believed that relationships are everything in the Kingdom of God. He invested in lives and valued individuals just like God does.
We praise You, God, that You love people and value a relationship with us and enable us to love one another by Your grace. Cause us to let our speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that we will know how we should respond to each person.
