Salty Conversations

Colossians 4:6 Season Your Words With Salt Of Grace — Tell the Lord Thank  You

This post is going to be short & sweet (maybe a little salty too)…I know, it’s rare that I write short posts! I read Colossians 4:6 the other day and was puzzled as to why in the world my words should be salty. I’ve definitely heard of words being sweet like honey or sugar, but I have never heard of someone referring to their words, or the words of someone else as “salty.”

It got me thinking a lot, and here’s what I came up with…

  • In cooking, salt is used to improve taste
  • Salt is used as a preservative

So, the same is true with our words. The more “salt” or uplifting and encouraging things we say, the more of a positive impact our words bring to those around us.

With regards to this, I think a lot of specific times I’ve met with people to catch up and talk and how this applies to those talks. When our conversations are happy, joyful, full of laughter, and positive things, I leave feeling like I’m on Cloud 9. On the other hand, I’ve also had conversations where I’ve complained a lot and gossiped, and left feeling guilty, more upset, or sometimes, even more angry.

So, not only do our words and conversations impact those around us, they impact ourselves too! Choose your words wisely today, knowing they DO make a difference in your life, in the lives of those that you are speaking to, AND in the lives of people listening to your conversations.

Let’s “salt” those conversations and leave a good “taste.” Stay salty!
