1 Corinthians 14:10-11
There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.…
I. LANGUAGE IS DESIGNED AS THE VEHICLE OF THOUGHT.
1. Many languages.
2. All significant.
II. LANGUAGE CEASES TO BE THE MEDIUM OF THOUGHT WHEN NOT UNDERSTOOD. There is —
1. No instruction.
2. No sympathy of mind.
3. No edification.
III. PLAINNESS SHOULD THEREFORE BE STUDIED —
1. As the most excellent of gifts.
2. For the benefit of the Church. With much prayer.
(J. Lyth, D. D.)
