Jesus challenges us to make sure our words are clear and genuine. They should reflect all of His love.
Embellishing what we say with religiosity is useless. Being religious isn’t being genuine in God.
Sounding religious doesn’t make us religious.
God’s goal for us is to be clear in what we say. Religious jargon is not God’s way.
“You don’t make your words true by embellishing them with religious lace.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:33)
