Colossians 4:6 (NRSV) Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone.
Loving God, thank you for your word that reminds us that what we say matters. Help us to be mindful of the speech that comes out of our mouths so that we will not hurt others with our words. Help us to inspire hope and peace through our utterances that others may be blessed. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
