Are Your Words Drenched with Grace?
—Grace & Truth Linkup

“How on earth do we speak with grace?”

This is the question Laura Thomas asks of us. Listen to the answer in Colossians 4:6:

“Let every word you speak be drenched with grace and tempered with truth and clarity.” Colossians 4:6a

I’m featuring Laura’s post for our Grace and Truth linkup this week. Don’t we all need more reminders to drench our words with grace these days? To temper them with truth and clarity? I know I do. Laura reminds us that because we’re on the receiving end of grace from God, we need to be givers of grace to others. She specifically mentions three ways we can speak with grace.
  1. Speak forgiveness.
  2. Speak kindness.
  3. Speak gentleness.

    I think I have difficulty with all three. ha ha. I have found myself lately, just not speaking at all. I feel at this point, everyone’s minds are made up, and there’s nothing I can say to change their minds or nothing they can say to change my mind, so my way of speaking kindly or gently is just to not say nothing at all if I come across anything on social media I disagree with or someone says something I disagree with.

    I was so struck by the use of the word drenched I had to look up the definition – it’s just how I process things. Drenched means soaked which led me to the idea of marinate. I’ve been extended grace in such a degree that I could marinate in it. After soaking awhile, it should ooze from my pores. And then? I should be able to pass it on .

      I love that you looked up “drenched”, Jerralea. I process things that way too. 🙂 I appreciate you sharing your insight about soaking awhile in grace. I do believe that if we all would spend more time marinating in God’s goodness, we’d be more likely to share it with others. Thank you!
