You are a witness.

Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. 

As long as we are in this world, the Lord will use us to be His witness to those who are perishing. How do we witness? Stand on a street corner waving the Bible around and shouting? Quote the KJV to everyone we see? 

Ah, maybe, if the Lord has called you as an Evangelist. 

But all of us are called to be His witnesses. What has the Lord done in your life? Start there. 

In the verses above, the one that speaks to me is to 'Let your speech be always with grace," Grace.
Grace is humble wisdom, compassion linked with knowledge that your words shine life instead of club someone over the head with righteousness. Grace first and then seasoned with salt. The Truth.

Be ready to answer. Be watchful for those that the Lord puts in your path. And redeem the time with His timely word of life for those who are hurting,

Be Ready!
