A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Why Say It?


A gathering of sunshine flowers in Canton

For a pretense make long prayers. Mark 12:40 New King James Version                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Do you think because you say a lot of words or use big words you are impressing Jehovah?       


Have you ever met anyone that likes to use big words to impress you?                       

They always look like idiots to me. I met many people in China that always wanted to use big words to impress but did not understand their meaning.                              

As well it is a irritant when in church or at a meeting or before a meal they just say a prayer but it is just lip service.                                                                                            

If you want to impress Jehovah speak from the heart not the mind. Otherwise, just shut up because you are just wasting your time, God is not listening.                           

Speak from the heart or do not speak to Jehovah.  He is not interested in your words; He is interested in your heart. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus our friend) bestow upon me the wonderful privilege to enjoy walking with You, talking with You with a sincere heart, listening to You as an admiring friend and obey You as Your humble servant every moment of every day.  In Your gracious name I beseech You. Amen.                                                                       

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Amen! Long words are great if you happen to be a literary intellectual and that’s how you normally think, but God is most “impressed” by our humility.
    I learnt some precious lessons working with radical young Christians (their major ministry tended to be Goths and Satanists) they had a vocabulary all their own with which they praised and prayed, but it was sure from their heart!

    • The other thing I have learned is that the long winded ones are usually the ones that are the farthest from Jesus. They love to talk but when you watch them, they do not walk the walk.

  2. You are right in this. God looks at the heart of us all…what’s in it, how sincere we are, etc. Big words mean very little. And they mean nothing to God if we have no conviction of His love in our hearts…


    • The other thing I have learned is that the long winded ones are usually the ones that are the farthest from Jesus. They love to talk but when you watch them, they do not walk the walk. They are very self righteous and condemning of others while their lives are much worse.

      • Many times this is true. I like those who use as few words of their own, and more of Jesus’ words. It called “expository teaching” because it allows the truth to be exposed through the words of the inspired word of God.

        Have a great day, my friend!


      • I like those who explain Bible verses in their historical, cultural and financial context of the day. It helps deepen our understanding of the
