… a fresh way of saying something, a new term for the latest fad, latest social media trend, methodology for ministry, doctrinal terminology, etc… Whether you are a “traditionalist” or “progressive” – I’m coming to think we all like a new (fresh) take on verbiage. There is something about re-wording common phrases that intrigues.
Just this morning I told one of my sons: “I love you big”. I’m far from a grammar guru (you can probably tell from this blog) but “I love you big??”
You know what struck my heart in this..? I knew that I could tell my son: “I love you a lot” – and that would have communicated (grammar and all) a message that was complete. But it wasn’t until I freshened what I normally tell him to “I love you big” that he smiled with a huge smile knowing full well what I meant and enjoying the freshness of the interaction and reminder. Ask God to freshen his love to you today. He will pull through – he love to reveal himself in new ways!
