A Person of Few Words

It makes a lot of sense to be a person of few words.

(Proverbs 17:27 CEV)

I remember completing an application form that was limited to a specific word count. I had to write about an important experience, using as few words as possible. It was hard to be succinct and still share my experience, but it did teach me how to talk about what’s important. I’m reminded of Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:7-8. He taught the large crowd that had come to hear Him, “When you pray, don’t talk on and on as people do who don’t know God. They think God likes to hear long prayers. Don’t be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask.” He then went on to teach them a simple prayer, also known as “The Lord’s Prayer,” which is memorized by many due to its short form. However, this short prayer encompasses all the right things that we should ask for. It demonstrates that a few, yet meaningful words, can still have a big impact.

A few, yet meaningful words, can have a big impact.
