Words Have Meaning

We’ve all heard someone introduced as a  “word-smith”. What is usually being conveyed is that the individual has developed the disciplined skill of  word usage. From a biblical perspective, all christians should pursue this craft. Such pursuit should not be interpreted as employing “big words” designed to impress nor does it mean being politically correct or the mastering of ambiguity and spin.

Quite the opposite. I submit that the objective is to  translate thoughts into substantive words with such clarity and cogency that the hearers are meaningfully and volitionally engaged.

I can hear people saying to me now,”physician, heal thyself!”  To which I reply”Truth Lord!”

Check out this clip and you may personally encounter  motivation for becoming a genuine word-smith.
