With Elegance and Intentionality

 I heard someone say, recently, that when they are engaged in conversation, or are posed a question, they ask themselves, "What am I trying to say?" They added that this internal dialogue resulted in a more concise and intentional comment, which is a much more elegant way to converse.

Now, I love a good chatter session, but so often I find I am jawing but not really sharing meaningfully or listening thoughtfully. Love this advice.

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, 
so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.  Colossians 4:6
