I Cor. 2:13 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  Softness of Grace, Enhanced.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Let your language be always seasoned with the salt of grace, so that you may know how to give every man a fitting answer.”  WNT (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Well, we call an old sailor an “old salt” sometimes.  Could this be because seawater is so salty?  And if you are out sailing, you are probably going to be wet and salty at the same time?  Maybe!

But here we read that our language is to be salty.  What?  Does that mean something good?  It certainly could.  If someone is witty or knowledgeable, we might describe him as salty.  But, some salty language on our Earth might not be for everyone’s ears. 

But if we look at the basic use of salt, we can probably pick up the meaning of this scripture pretty well.  Salt brings out flavor.  Salt preserves.  Salt is almost always on the dinner table.

But how can salt be of the grace of God?  Doesn’t grace come from the graciousness of our God?  Isn’t it soft and not bold like the flavor of salt?  Perhaps, because grace embodies God’s charitable attitude toward us sinners.  But, consider how certain products enhance the flavor in foods . . . but are not salt.  Almond, for example, is not salty, but it is sometimes put into recipes to bring out the flavor of ice cream perhaps.  And nutmeg is a flavor-enhancer for white sauce in macaroni and cheese.

No, bringing out flavor does not have to be as noticeable as salt on pretzels.  But sometimes salt is even used to tone down the sweetness of certain foods . . . such as homemade candy.  It just reduces the “too sweet” aspect.

When we present the grace of God to someone, we do want to be salty . . . maybe not “witty” as such, but at least well-spoken and with understandable meaning.  God’s salt in our words will enhance what we say to the hearer. 

Lord, help us to know how to be well-spoken of your grace.  Your grace is delicious to our souls; we can’t get by without it.  Help us to be smart in our words as we speak to others.  May the salt of grace help them to see their pathway to You, and to LIFE, should they be struggling in this area of their lives, concerning decisions that definitely affect life and death.

Topics:  Pray to understand the graciousness of God’s grace and to be able to communicate it as enhanced by the flavor of the words He gives us.
Our nation’s schools:  coaches to present pro-life attitudes, directly or indirectly to athletes.
