STOP AND THINK – Ye great teachers: listen to what you say! (Goethe, 18 and 19th century German statesman)
Ever heard a teacher who just kept droning on, boring his audience, and seeming to push out words and ideas without thinking about what he’s saying. Or, perhaps, you’ve heard someone who is really saying something worthwhile, but who doesn’t live up to his own teaching. In both cases, we may want to shout, “Wake up, listen to what you’re saying.”
If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God (1 Peter 4:11).
