Colossians 4:1-6

"Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.
Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."
Colossians 4:1-6

Some good advice today. :)  If we have power over other people, let's be careful and wise with it... treating other people well as we'd like God to treat us, with his power.  Pray, and watch for the answers, and always be thankful. :)  Pray for others, including missionaries, that they'll be able to express themselves and the complexities of the gospel. :)  Be wise in how we behave with people that aren't with us.  Distance might make it harder to communicate, but out of sight should not be out of mind or eliminate the need for love and respect in all relationships.  And finally, salt all our speech with grace.  I love that last part.  Speaking with grace to everyone is how we should answer.  Today, let's try to follow this great advice, treating people with grace, and praying and watching God's hand in our lives.
