Born Dumb?

Part of an interesting article from Steve Kryger, quoting D.L. Moody

It is a very sad thing that so many of God’s children are dumb; yet it is true. Parents would think it a great calamity to have their children born dumb; they would mourn over it, and weep; and well they might; but did you ever think of the many dumb children God has? The churches are full of them; they never speak for Christ. They can talk about politics, art, and science; they can speak well enough and fast enough about the fashions of the day; but they have NO VOICE FOR THE SON OF GOD. Dear friend, if He is your Savior, confess Him.

Makes me think of Colossians 4:5-6

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

… In other news, I think Steve’s “Communicate Jesus” blog could be my new favourite read!
