Daily Devotional from Colossians 4--Verse 6Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.How we respond to others, especially in conflict, reveals much about our character. I’m so glad that Jesus offers us grace because all of us fail in being gracious in our speech. Here, Paul is encouraging us to let our words be like salt, bringin...  Read More

Colossians 4:18I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand.
