*TOPIC: OUR IMPACT ON OTHERS*

*MEMORY VERSE:*
"Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity" (Colossians 4:5,NIV)

*Today's Text:*
Colossians 4:2-6

*BIBLE IN ONE YEAR*
Isaiah 23-25
Mark 6:1-29

*MESSAGE:*
A story was told about-an elderly man whose hearing had declined over the years to where he could hardly get what those around him were saying. Finally, he went to a doctor and got a hearing aid. When he went back after a month for a checkup, the doctor asked how his family members liked being able to be heard when they spoke to him. "I didn't tell them about the hearing aid," the man replied. "I just sit there and listen. So far, i have changed my will three times!"

God tells us in His Word that our speech should be wisely balanced
with both grace and salt coming from our tongues. There are times to correct and times to praise and times to instruct. There are no times when it is right to gossip, murmur or be critical-with a harsh spirit. Many times, we speak carelessly and thoughtlessly, not taking time to consider the impact of the words we use on those who hear them.

The same passage, in which Paul asked for people to pray for his speaking to be effective when he preached the gospel, contains
this instruction about our daily conversation. Have you ever prayed
that God would guide and guard your words as you talk to others?
A person who does that will not casually speak because of the
reminder of the importance of what we say to those who hear us. Choose your words with great care, for they have powerful impact on the lives of the hearers.

*CONTROLLING THOUGHTS
A wise man is always conscious of the effect of his words on others.

PRAYER
Dear Holy Spirit, help me to season my words with salt. Amen
