This Weeks' WORD

So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air.

1 Corinthians 14:9

Does anyone else have a pre-teen son who needs to memorize and put this verse into practice???
I know, I know, Paul wasn't talking about mumbling children here. But this verse brought a smile to my face as I thought about how many times I have said, "Joshua, if you don't speak clearly and loudly I cannot understand you!"

Thanks, Paul! Next time I'll try using these words.

BTW, Pam is giving away a copy of Confessions of an Irritable Mother. Click here to enter!

May the LORD bless you and keep you over the weekend. I'll see you back here Monday.

Love to you,


Karen

I've said the same thing to my little grand-girls. It's usually when they are confessing some wrong doing that they are unintelligible. :)

Thanks for your prayers. I'm finally able to sit for a little while again.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Love ya!

It lasts into the teenage years? Oh no! My three year old starts rattling off in mumble speak whenever she's mad at me or doesn't want to do something I've asked. It's pretty much a conversation killer!

Edie - Being in the wrong will do that to you, won't it? *grin*
So glad to hear you're starting to feel better!

Kris - Sorry to say. Yes.
Though it isn't true for everyone. My teenage daughter pretty much always speaks intelligibly. Joshua is the mumble king!
