Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity . Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
How does one season their conversation with salt? In this context, it seems as though we are being reminded not to allow ourselves to be wishy-washy or unclear when speaking the Truth. We should look for opportunities and not shy away from them. This is difficult for me, but it has become a bit easier with age. It is the wisdom piece- the knowing what to say- that still holds me back.
Holy One, help me to listen for your voice through your Holy Spirit. If I can listen, I will hear the direction I am seeking. Listening is so difficult. Amen
