Economy of Words

I spoke with a pastor this week and he mentioned the importance of speaking in brevity. In other words, don't take fifty words to say what you could say in ten. This is important for Christians, we should always choose our words wisely, but especially when it comes to spiritual matters. Often our loquacious tendencies are aimed more at flaunting our knowledge and understanding than at shedding light on God's holy Word.

Never say in few words what needs thourough definition, but always say as little as possible. It's strikes me that saying as little as possible is much like me decreasing and Him increasing (see John 3:30).
