On Mission: Words and Deeds
Colossians 4:5–6
September 11, 2016


I. On mission through deeds. Colossians 4:5

     A. Understand the difficulty.

Questions for reflection:

  • It may be helpful to think of a small number of particular “outsiders” with whom you are in some kind of contact. Who are they?
  • How wise has your conduct been towards these “outsiders”? How might you increase in “wisdom towards outsiders”?
  • What does it mean to you that your speech should be characterized by grace and seasoned with salt?
