The words we choose in our everyday conversations tell the most about who we are. If we choose a harsh tone and unkind words, it’s going to be hard for those around you to see God’s grace at work in your life. When we speak harshly it also makes it hard for those who love you to see you as a cherished child of God. Often resulting in others responding to us with negativity. This is why it’s so important for us to choose grace in the way we communicate. Be the one who ends the cycle of negativity in your relationships. Let your words be a beacon of light to those around you.
Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
~ Colossians 4:6 [NLT]
