My Croatian friend said she was sad that many American TV programs are now dubbed instead of having Croatian subtitles.
"Why don't you want the actors speaking Croatian?" I asked.
"How will we learn and practice our English?"
I wondered how much I would complain if I had to read subtitles for 90% of what I watch. Like most Americans, I've put little effort into language learning.
But the most critical language we learn and the worst to neglect is "the language of God."
"We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again." Hebrews 4:11-12
Even if we are not fluent in a foreign language, let's study so we're fluent in God's Word. And when we need help understanding, let's ask our Divine Translator for help.
