Scripture

Colossians 4:2-6

2 Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude ofthanksgiving; 3 praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; 4 that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak.

5 [a]Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, [b]making the most of the opportunity. 6 Let your speech always be [c]with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
