Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.
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.
I have gotten in many a heated exchange with non-believers; how could that not possibly see things the way that I do? Unfortunately, the way that I handled these situations may have driven some non-believers even further away. Tact and wisdom are required, and humility is a virtue that a person with any beliefs can appreciate. Grace and wisdom are required in these exchanges...and everything tastes better with a little salt!
Christ in Heaven, be my guide in my life. Your grace, wisdom, and humility have convinced non-believers for thousands of years, even when they can not see, hear, or feel you personally. Forgive me for my brutish ways in times of anger; I know that I have hardened the hearts of non-believers at times. Give me the patience to hear them as You always hear me, O Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
