Wisdom in Speaking

11-17-2019David Lins

This Sunday’s Gospel contains an interesting paragraph:

“They will seize and persecute you, they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons, and they will have you led before kings and governors because of my name. It will lead to your giving testimony. Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand, for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute.”

As someone who has given talks and written articles for many years, this excerpt of Scripture has always stood out.

Before giving a talk, you should always be prepared. Before writing any article, you should have a clear endpoint in mind. (Think of it as knowing where you want to land the plane before taking off.)
