You could call it a party. A small gathering of sorts. With lots of laughter and good conversation and then the inevitable...lull. What to say? What to say next? Everyone is searching inside the walls of their brain for the next topic of conversation. Then, unfortunately, Mr. Mortimer Mortifyer spills the beans on a topic that although was seemingly hilarious to the group, would have actually brought great humiliation to those regarding the new topic of conversation. He should have shut up. He should have kept his big yap closed, but just for the sake of conversation he blew the lid off of something he wasn't even aware of at the time and no one in the room would have ever met those involved...but if what if they knew anyway? How would they feel? Maybe they wouldn't care all, but what if they did? Is it really funny to bring dishonor to a fellow human being...all for the sake of conversation?
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
