We live in a society that if you are a good talker, you could get the things you want in life faster. If you are in the sales industry, you would probably always hit your sales target and receive bonuses.
In the corporate world, being a good talker could help you climb the corporate ladder faster.
If you are a good talker in the social circle, as a guy, probably have loads of relationships,
If you are the politician, you could get elected to office.
In the religious circle, a good talker leader could get a lot of followers.
In summary, to be a good speaker/talker could accelerate the process of accomplishment and achievement for a person’s desires.
However what we have to realize is that most of the wisdom of this good talker is earthly.
From a secular point of view, they can only live by what they know, and the only wisdom they know is worldly, in which the Bible says that such wisdom does not come down from heaven, but is earthly, unspiritual and demonic. ( James 3:15)
A lot of people that engage in this earthly, worldly wisdom, will do absolutely anything to get by and earn a buck, they have no fear of the Lord in their heart.
One good tester for allowing people close to you is to test whether or not they have the fear of the Lord.
People that don’t have a fear of the Lord can’t be trusted period. I am not just referring to secular people, but religious people, many Christians don’t have a fear of the Lord in them, if they had, they wouldn’t act the way they do.
In 1 Corinthians 4:20 reads, For the Kingdom of God consists of and is based on NOT TALK but POWER ( MORAL POWER & EXCELLENCE OF SOUL)
Let’s look at Moral Power first, the word moral relates to standards of good and bad behavior, fairness, and honesty, in order words, Moral Power is the power to act in a good, honest and fair manner.
Secondly, let’s elaborate on Excellence of Soul, – Excellence means the quality of being outstanding or extremely good.
If a person professes to be a Christian there is a standard set for us; it’s not talking – what we say, but what we do and how we act. Our actions according to Apostle Paul should be HONEST, & EXTREMELY GOOD.
There are a lot of people who are not Christians but exhibit these qualities, but how do we know if they have these qualities of character?, we will have to discern them, better still the Bible says we should not be unequally yoked with unbelievers, so that settles that.
In regards to Christian ‘s one just has to discern every single person that comes one’s way, as the Christian standard has dropped, we don’t know who the real Christians are.
The good news is there is a required standard for a child of God, and that is to exhibit Moral Power & Excellence of Soul.
Until next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
