“But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them.
It’s the same for you. If you speak to people in words they don’t understand, how will they know what you are saying? You might as well be talking into empty space.”
1 Corinthians 14:3, 9 NLT
The words from our mouths should be used for good, to strengthen, give hope, give comfort, to build up the church & the people of God. But we must speak to people genuinely, BRING IT TO THEIR LEVEL. Don’t try to show them how smart we are or how much more we know than them. Don’t throw out a lot of words that they don’t understand so that they are duly impressed. If people cannot understand what we are telling them then our words, our time, and theirs have all been wasted.
