Think about the first words we speak each day or when we greet someone.
There is a children’s book simply titled First Words. The design of the book is to help children with some of their first words, words like refrigerator, rhinoceros, broccoli, clarinet, harmonica, dandelions, octopus, and basketball. I know what you’re thinking.
However, think about the words we use as leaders. Are our words clear and easily understood, or do people need a dictionary to find out what we are talking about?
The Bible teaches us to be careful about our words and how we use them. Leaders should be those who speak first, speak well, and speak clearly.
