BDBD is Colossians 4:2-6

  Jesus gave his disciples and brothers a mission to share the good news, the mysteries of Christ. Thus, Paul speaks of the need for prayer, communication with my maker and commisioner.
   Everyday I engage in conversations with others. Do I seek to always be conscious of opportunities to be kind, pay attention to their being, and share the good news? Do I make the most of every opportunity?
   I admit the words “make the most of every opportunity” and “always full of grace” are daunting. Sometimes I want to create a cocoon and hibernate in it. Other times I judge others unworthy of the good news. And often I am afraid.
   And so here-in lies the wise advice to “devote myself to prayer, being watchful and thankful (2).” The gene I inherited (or whatever it is) that is always there compelling me inward is overwhelmed by the power of God, the same power that rose Jesus from the grave. God enables me to overcome all that hinders good from being shared.
