On the Radio, someone concerned for the church, what I heard was a string of metaphors. I did not count.
Metaphors and at the same time rote, repeated and shopworn, and I have to say disconnected from reality.
And there were too many to count.
Words can have power – for example, God said, “Let there be light.”
Words can be meaningless piling on.
Perhaps I should have thought of this:
“Do not be quick with your mouth,
do not be hasty in your heart
to utter anything before God,
God is in heaven,
and you are on earth,
so let your words be few”
Ecclesiastes 5:2 NIV-84
