SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 1951 PLYTHEVILLE. (ARK. 1 ) COURIER NEWS PAGE TORE! CONVERSATION A parrot can talk. But he can only say the things he hat heard! Human conversation is not so far removed from parrot-talk as we might like to believe. We too base most of our conversation on the things we have heard. But we digest thoughts that have been given us, consider them, make them our own, and then repeat them in our own words. And yet, unlike the parrots, we influence others by the gift of speech. Our words can brighten or darken the lives of many people. The God who has given us the gift of speech has also given us access to Truth. The spiritual knowledge we gain as we worship and study in our churches is the key to what the Bible calls "a holy conversation." And that doesn't mean using pious phrases! It means using the gift of speech to help, rather than hurt, ourselves and others.
