The Intelligence of Our Elocution

Posted on Updated on

Guard Your TongueIntelligent people are able to hold intelligent conversations using other words than those that contain only four letters. Spewing forth four letter expletives to express oneself does not by any stretch of the imagination make a woman appear to be more of a woman or a man more of a man. Using foul and offensive language does not rack up any points on the meter of intelligence, instead it does tend to peg the meter of ignorance.

The Word that We SpeakThe use of crass language is not only a sign of a lack of self-respect, but it is also an indication that the person who chooses to riddle his elocution with such deplorable expressions has little to no respect for humanity as a whole.

The very words that a person vocalizes can in essence bring about his own condemnation, or they can proffer him accolades and commendations. By his own words a person can send a message to the world that he is the friend of pigs and enjoys living his life wallowing in the pig pen, or he can send a message to the world that he chooses to live his life in the company of eagles soaring to new and majestic heights.

But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:36-37).
