Farm Wife Devotions: Grace
The Greek word "grace" in this verse means "the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life;".
So, let's read the verse again with that in there!
Let your speech be always with the divine influence upon your heart and its reflection in your life!
Wow! That puts it in a much clearer perspective doesn't it?!
I have to admit, my words do not always demonstrate grace, let alone God's influence on my heart and His reflection in my life. Do yours?
Feelings of stress, anger and fear often lead to poor choice of words. That's why in those situations we must make a deliberate consistent choice to lean on that "divine influence"! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ God, help my words to my family and those I interact with, be a reflection of Your influence on my heart and Your reflection in my life, so that I can truly extend Your grace to others!
