Words No. 1

It’s no good having the same vocabulary if we’re using different dictionaries. (Quoted by John Stonestreet, commentator)

It’s difficult to have a meaningful discussion with someone if you’re using the same words but with different meanings. If they are simply same-sounding words with different spellings and meanings (e.g. site, cite, sight), they can be simply explained. But, when you use words like freedom, fairness, or rights, you really have to define your terms for clear understanding.

My words are plain to anyone with understanding, clear to those with knowledge. (Proverbs 3:9)
