Intellect has always been one of man's passions. We all look up to smart people. Smart people look up to even smarter people. I was a research scientist in my early career. I received a couple patents. One day I looked around and realized I was not the smartest. It seemed most everyone was smarter than me. It was then I decided I wanted to do something I could be the smartest in.
When Jesus came on the scene, there was a man named Nathanael. He thought himself pretty smart and John thought him pretty smart, also. That is to say, until he opened his mouth. In that way, Nathanael and I were the same. He said, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?”
"My high school teacher said I was really smart until I opened my mouth"~priest It has been a bit like that most of my life. I am pretty smart until I say otherwise. I have begun to incorporate God's Word in my speech. It seems truth is pretty smart and I am not at risk of being counted as dumb. Except by those that don't count anyway.
So today, I choose to speak truth with a splash of love. I figure I can't go wrong…
