I always try to think of this verse regarding how I talk to others or how I talk in general. The first word in this verse, “Let” indicates that we can’t even control our own speech or conversations. When we are walking with the Lord or desire to be in a right relationship with the Lord, the way we talk might be a good start. When we have the mindset that we need to be fully trusting in the Lord in our lives, our daily lives, verses in the Bible, like this one, becomes real to us.
Colossians 3:23 “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;”
Paul’s goal in his life was to Glorify and Honor the Lord in everything he did. All the places that Paul went to, he had to walk or ride a horse or camel, but however you look at it, it took a while to get where he was going. The point is that he must have had a lot of time to think about how to phrase things or explain different things from the Bible. If somebody asked you, “How do I get saved?”? How would you explain the Gospel to them? That’s something we need to think about.
How do you think God would want us to answer others and talk with them? When we read the Bible, we’ll learn more about God and his plan for us. He gave us His word so that we would read it and learn more of Him and whatever we learn about God, we can tell others.
