“…he who loves purity of heart and has grace on his lips, the king will be his friend…” 

Proverbs 22:11 (NKJV)

When you speak to people do you communicate grace? Do you speak respectfully or arrogantly? Well, if you want to have men and women of influence as friends, then you must learn how to speak. You must learn how to talk gracefully to people and win their heart. You must learn how to talk in a manner that doesn’t offend people but adds value to their life. This is something that every Christian must learn to be able to maintain a good relationship with people. If you do not know how to talk, people will always end up running away from you because truly nobody wants to be around someone who doesn’t add value to their lives when they speak. Many marriages have hit the rock today because of the wrong way of talking. Many folks have lost their jobs because of this same thing. When you don’t know how to talk to people, you will find it difficult to keep any relationship or be relevant in any organisation. Therefore, it is important that you take this very seriously and become conscious of the way you talk. One reason most people end up talking in the way they aren’t supposed to talk is that they are not conscious of what they say. They do not think before they talk, they just open their mouth and say whatever comes out and in the process, they offend the people they are talking to. However, you can avoid talking to people rudely or arrogantly when you start paying attention to the things you say. When you pay attention, you will choose your words wisely and say things that will bring a blessing to your listeners instead offence.

     So as you speak to your colleagues, friends and family relatives today, remember to speak to them kindly. Add some regards to your words and always be sure to speak in a way that you will not be misunderstood. Remember your words can go a long way to do a lot of harm or good, depending on how you put them. Therefore, “…let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one…” Colossians 4:6 (NKJV).


When you speak gracefully, men and women of influence will be your friends!


I am a new creation therefore I do not speak carelessly but carefully. When I speak, I speak grace, when I speak, I add value to my listeners and everyone that comes in contact with my words leaves me blessed by my words because I talk respectfully and gracefully. Praise God!
