To a writer, "wordy" is a negative criticism and a huge weakness.
We writers love the sound of words and phrases and sentences and often get carried away.
But I propose a positive meaning for "Wordiness" with a capital W.
♥ We can have a Wordy morning by drinking in several passages of Scripture along with our morning coffee.
♥ We can remain Wordy throughout the day by pondering verses we've memorized or posting them in visible places in our home, car or office.*
♥ We can make Wordy decisions by testing all other advice against God's Word.
♥ And we can use Wordy therapy to deal with our passions, lusts, fears, insecurities and anger.
Worldliness comes naturally. It's part of our fallen human nature, our old man (Ephesians 4:22-24).
Wordiness requires deliberate attitudes and actions to renew our minds in God's Word (Romans 12:1-2).
Well, before I get wordy, I'll wish you a Wordy Monday and a Wordy week.
*Post-it notes are a great way to do this.
