If you want to communicate clearly and with meaning to people in the street, be careful about using in-house talk they don’t understand.
Years ago a traveling preacher was riding his horse through the country when he came upon an old farmer at his house. He greeted the farmer and asked, “Are you lost?” “No, sir, I’ve lived on this same place for forty years.”
“Are you part of the Christian family?” “No, the name’s Johnston.” “What I want to know is if you are ready for the judgment?” “I didn’t even know about it. When’s it going to be?”
“It could be tomorrow or it could be the next day.” “Don’t tell my wife. She would want to go both days.”
