Email Tips: Teach as to Children

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, March 13th, 2010 .

Understanding your Bible should not be complicated. If feedback you receive says you are making it difficult, you need to change your approach. Try explaining it to a child.

Children have smaller vocabularies and less tolerance if you misspeak. This forces you to explain new concepts using simpler words and to define new words clearly.

Without simplifying the message we risk sounding over-complicated and convoluted.

Without condescending, we need to speak plainly and clearly to people if we are to make all men see the fellowship of the mystery (Eph 3:9).

We can not make them believe, but If they can not see then we have failed at our job.

Simplify. Speak clear. Help them see.

For His glory,

Justin “plain and clear” Johnson
