Full of grace

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Colossians 4:5-6 (NIV)

For me, as a bit of an introvert, I find it difficult to engage with people at the best of times, never mind those who I don’t already know. So finding the right words to say to welcome and answer questions of those who don’t know Christ, ‘outsiders’, is something I also find challenging.

I therefore pray that God will give me the words needed to respond to others’ questions, as on my own I would be unable to find the right words. I guess it’s about letting those ‘outsiders’ know that when it comes to God’s love for each of us, there are no outsiders.
