“Let your speech always be with grace as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person” (Colossians 6:4).

Instead of dull and insipid, our conversations of faith should be seasoned in a way that enhances and enlivens. Too often our long faces and sour dispositions betray the confidence, hope, and joy of which we speak. One ancient usage of the word salt was in association with humor. We do well to remember that a joyful heart is good medicine (Proverbs 17:22), especially for those around you.
