Just saw a post re: ‘Be yourself’. Nice bumper sticker or t-shirt, but how often do we quote ‘the world’ who has no infinite wisdom when we could quote Christ whom has it all ?
When believers default to ‘sayings’, colloquialisms and euphemisms, so much gets lost. The deliverer is thinking one thing, the hearer another.
What if our ‘sayings’ where the ‘boring scripture quotes’ my grandmother always spoke in ?
I really miss hearing her speak only wisdom – perhaps why she was named ‘Pearl’.
