1 Corinthians 14:6-9

But now brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you unless I speak to you either by revelation, by knowledge, by prophesying, or by teaching. Even things without life, whether flute or harp, when they make a sound, unless they make a distinction in the sounds, how will it be known what is piped or played? For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle? So likewise you, unless you utter by the tongue words easy to understand, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air.


Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

The Bible contains such wisdom and beauty, as well as plain common sense. Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit, writes with just that kind of common sense in these verses. He writes that the sounds that come out of our mouths must make sense in order to be helpful, just as the sounds that come out of the trumpet must make sense in order to call the troops to battle. Who enjoys listening to someone bang indiscriminately on a piano? But everyone enjoys hearing the beautiful harmony of a piece well played! May the words that come out of our mouths make sense to the glory of God.

God Bless You!
