“Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one.”
– Colossians 4:6
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
The fifth pitfall of evangelization is a lack of humility; the attitude or feeling that you must have all the answers to every question. What’s much more important than tying to have all the answers is how you answer people.
It’s perfectly ok to politely and humbly tell someone that you don’t know the answer to a certain question, but that you would be happy to look into it and get back to them. This response is so much more fruitful than trying to give an answer you don’t know or giving a wrong answer in an attempt to seem intelligent.
