Daily Devotional ~ Together
❤ Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "Together" by For King & Country feat. Kirk Franklin & Tori Kelly. Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
💛 Daily Verse: Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
☆ Colossians 4:5-6 NLT
💙 Let's Talk About It: Paul is adamant in more than one of his epistles (letters) that we are to do our best not to offend one another. Here however, he focuses on the actions he believes followers of Christ should be exhibiting. Funny enough, it's essentially the same thing, however the presentation is little different and this is important to us seeing Paul's growth as well as our own.
When we follow the advice Paul had provided to is today, we allow our actions to speak long before we have the ability to speak to someone. Plus we the opportunity arises, we should be gracious and kind. Some versions say pur words should be "seasoned with salt" (ESV, NKJV, HCSB, etc.).
This is important to keep in mind because salt is something that is added to a dish in order that it might make the food taste better. Therefore, our words should be such to make people feel better, think better, etc. If what we have to say wouldn't be considered salt, then maybe it's best we simply don't say anything at all, at least then, we can continue walking in grace.
Remember, dear friends, we don't want to be the reason someone else falls. We are walking this path of faith out together.💕
💜 Additional Reading: So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.
☆ Romans 14:13 NLT
🧡 Prayer: Dear Father, you are so good. Thank you for this beautiful day. Thank you for protecting my friends and family and for allowing me the opportunity to be a light for you. Lord, thank you for teaching me what your love is in action everyday. Help me to be your hands and feet, Jesus.

I love you and in your name I pray, amen.
