An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

(Pro 5:3 KJV) For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

Have you ever felt like you had a speech impediment when you tried to speak?  You stumble and stutter.  You can’t remember the right word.  You struggle to find the end of a sentence.  You realize that your verb is not matching your noun.  I have been there.  I get that way when I need to leave a message on a voice mail abomination.  This reminds us that “smoother” (2509) speech is not necessary to be godly.

On the surface this warns us against people who are too glib.  It also should remind us that being genuine is more important than great rhetoric. 

So?  One of the turmoils of life that we are not to get all tensed up about is speaking like a professional.  Unless you are going to make radio commercials it won’t help you a lot.
