“Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.” Colossians 4:5–6 (NKJV)  Not another one of those calls…  “Want to sell your house?”  “Do you want to extend your home warranty… how […]
