Seasoned with salt – NOT Salty language!
Even though words fly out of our mouths with meaning formed from our emotions and experience, they can be received and interpreted differently by the individuals receiving them.
Obviously, our words have different meanings depending on what part of the country we are in. For instance, asking for a pop outside of the Southern United States will get you blank stares instead of asking for a soda or other carbonated beverage.
The point I am trying to share is that our words need to be geared toward the audience we are addressing.
Our dinner conversations with our 22-year-old daughter revolves around more adult themed topics like finances and insurance instead of the topics we discussed with her in her younger years.
Are you making sure the words you are using are being received in the right manner?..
Check your experience…
“Patience, tolerance, understanding and love are the watchwords.” Big Book pg 118
Lord let our words be filled with grace and formed so that the ears of those receiving will understand, AMEN.
“Live wisely among those who are not believers and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.” Colossians 4: 5-6
Have a blessed day Y’all!!
