Frank wasn't known for his patience & he had absolutely no use for negative conversation.
When he got a call from his wife during a busy day at work, she talked slowly & didn't seem very cheerful. Frank interrupted her & exhorted her to be brief & positive.
She paused for a moment & then cheerfully replied, "I discovered the airbags in our new BMW work great!"
Mat 5:37 (ESV): “Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.”
Pro 10:19 (GNT): “The more you talk, the more likely you are to sin. If you are wise, you will keep quiet.”
“Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say 'infinitely' when you mean 'very'; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.” - C.S. Lewis.
