Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. Colossians 4:5-6
A little salt makes our food taste better!
It even makes green beans taste good!
Our good words makes life so much sweeter
If we sprinkle good words like we should!
We ought to say “please” and “thank you”
To show gratefulness each day.
We should tell family we love them.
As God loves each person He made.
Be careful not to use any harsh words!
Speak kindness instead of hurt.
Jesus showed us just how to do this
As He walked around on the earth.
Our words are very important.
God made light by His speech!
He said, “Let there be” and there was,
As in Genesis, chapter one and verse three.
Take time to give a good answer.
Speak in a truthful way.
Like good salt that flavors food.
Show that you mean what you say!
Fun Fact: God made our outside world by speaking. He said, “Let there be” and “it was so!”
