Colossians 4:6 Seasoned with Salt Devotion

At the end of Colossians, Paul exhorts the Christ-followers to use wisdom in their interaction with unbelievers. In 4:6 he says "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone." 

As we all know, salt is a vital mineral. It preserves food, increases flavor, aids in healing, and even balances fluids in the blood and helps muscles function. In a similar way, what we say and how we say it should be life-giving, too.

Moreso, our words should be a reflection of our heart's appreciation and joy of the gospel so that we're always making the best use of time with unbelievers. Our speech should add life-sustaining benefits to a conversation, offer healing, and point the way to the eternal preservation of souls. 

If this feels intimidating to you (it does me!), I encourage you to pray for the Holy Spirit's help and then practice. I love to talk out these concepts with my kids where the stakes feel low (as we'll have these converstations hundereds of times over the years). You can also grab a friend and ask to rehearse sharing your faith in a genuine, non-awkward, way. The more you do it, the better your story & faith will roll off your tongue. As a cook learns how to season his or her food properly with practice, tasting bites as they go, we too can learn how to effectively share the gospel with others. 

The Salt Necklace was designed around this passage because I needed a tangible reminder of this concept. It encourages me to speak life in our home, and to be prepared as I go into the world, too!
