Inspired by this today . . .

There is so much incivility in the world today. Because of the anonymity 
of the Internet, it is easier than ever to say toxic or grating things online. 
Shouldn’t we, the hopeful disciples of our gentle Christ, have a higher, 
more charitable standard? The scriptures teach,

“Let your speech be alway[s] with grace, seasoned with salt,
 that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man” (Colossians 4:6).


I like the idea of our words being clear as a sunny sky and full of grace. Can you imagine what our families, wards, nations, and even the world would be like if we could adopt this simple principle?
-- Dieter F. Uchtdorf

What a great quote. I admit that I've been tempted to say things online that I shouldn't...so this is a good reminder.
