This week we’re discussing four insights the Apostle Paul shares in Ephesians 4:29 that can help guard our tongues against gossip in the workplace. The final insight is “Grace.”
The clerk ringing up our groceries was speaking sharp and offensive words to Kathy. Kathy confronted her only to receive a, “Whatever.” Frustrated, Kathy pressed harder for this clerk to own the problem.
At home, Kathy told me, “I need to go back to the store and apologize to that clerk.” Kathy returned and brought grace into a strained situation.
Colossians 4:6 says, “Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”
Seasoning our speech with grace will prevent hurt feelings and guard against spreading gossip.
