Col. 4:5 Be Wise In The Way You Act Toward Outsiders; Make The Most Of Every Opportunity. 6 Let Your Conversation Be Always Full Of Grace, Seasoned With Salt, So That You May Know How To Answer Everyone.
When we hurt, we have the tendency or perhaps the desire to complain. We complain because we feel helpless. We complain because we want others to share our burden, making our burden less. However, when we are in pain, we must be a light in the darkness of others. When we speak with others, we must be intent on uplifting them rather then pulling them down with our whining or complaining. We have the opportunity whether we are in pain or not, to uplift others out of their plight. We can give people hope at a time when we need hope the most. Our reward for putting others first in this way is looking forward to a time when we hear the Master say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
