Don’t Fill the Void with Word Clutter

As I am preparing for our Easter service, I can’t help but be reminded of what my preaching professor has always told his students.

If you are going to break the silence, don’t fill the void with word clutter.

Meaning, make sure that what you have to say comes from God and not from you. There are enough words floating around from so many different voices, don’t clutter it even more with words that don’t matter.
