6 Let your [humon] speech [logos] be alway[pantote] with [en] grace, [charis] seasoned [artuo] with salt, [halas] that ye may know [eido] how [pos] ye [humas] ought [dei] to answer [apokrinomai] every [hekastos] man. [heis]KJV-Interlinear
6 Let your speech always be with
grace, seasoned, as it were, with salt, so that you may know how you should
respond to each person. NASB
Grace stands for
poise.Salt stands for truth or Bible
doctrine.Neither of these stand for
compromise or the allowance of false principles to be mixed in with truth.
All too often folks
want to be politically correct so as not to insult anyone.However, if anyone is insulted, then they are
lacking in truth, shallow and arrogant.And their deficiency should never become an excuse for diminishing
Lately there has been a
lot of coexistence rhetoric in the media, in entertainment, and even in bumper
stickers.The little signs seem harmless
enough when they include images from the major religions, however they are as
evil as evil can get.
If there is but one
God, one faith, one Savior, one truth, then all the
rest are lies.How can one include lies
in ones life, knowing that they will lead others to
eternal destruction?What honor is there
And although we are to
stand firm in truth (salt), Gods policy of grace gives us leeway to tolerate
the opinions of others (not respect them), while never forcing others to see
things our way.
Truth needs no crutch
to hold it up.Truth needs no support,
no added effort on our part.Truth makes
itself known and clear to all who hear it.But truth will never force itself on those who reject it.
Never allow peer
pressure make you deviate from truth.Never allow the need or want of social inclusion, make you deviate from
truth.Never allow ostracism, make you
deviate from truth.
Always hold your
spiritual ground within your own soul, while tolerating the views of others,
but not succumbing to their false ways.
Allow doctrine (truth) to
guide your walk through life.Do not
allow life to guide you, without doctrine.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
