Reading the health benefits of seasonings, I began adding more of them to my recipes. Turmeric, ginger, and garlic – the list goes on and on. Interestingly, God has a recipe for the words we speak. Yes, a heavenly seasoning with proven benefits. What is it? Grace. Colossians 4:6 says,
Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
Yes, the flavor of our food is improved with seasoning and the flavor of our relations is improved when we add grace to our words. The next time you say pass the salt, let it be a reminder to pass God’s grace to others. If you want to better understand God’s grace, get a copy of my study of 1 Peter – Grace and Peace.
