Motivate Others to Maturity
Paul’s ultimate life goal was to bring every person to full maturity in Christ. (See Colossians 1:23, 29.) One of the most successful motivators in business was Frank Bettger. He stated, “There is just one way to get people to act: find out what they want and help them see the best way to get it.” This is the essence of the verse: “Let your speech be always with grace [desire and power to do God’s will], seasoned with salt [creating curiosity], that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man” (Colossians 4:6).
