Years ago my dad found a puzzling reminder he had written on his calendar: “DST.” Finally it dawned on him—Daylight Savings Time!
If we don’t always communicate clearly even to ourselves, how much more challenging it is to communicate effectively to others.
The Ultimate Communication
The Holy Spirit empowered the human authors of Scripture to convey God’s truth with utmost accuracy (John 14:25-26; 16:12-13; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; Ephesians 3:1-5; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Most of the Bible is clear enough. The rest may require diligent study. Anyone willing to probe deeply can testify it’s definitely worth it!
The Ultimate Communicator
The Bible equips us to become far more than we could have ever dreamed possible.
Who but God could do that?

Where they went wrong
“In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right . . .” (Judges 17:6).
The three dots following the word “right” indicate words have been deleted. The title of this article is the missing phrase. Deleting those four words dramatically changes the meaning.
This verse describes the sad decline of Israel in forsaking the true and living God to serve lifeless idols.
History repeating itself
Many today deny there is an objective, universal standard by which we must live. That standard is God’s word. They lean instead on their own understanding and are guided by their own subjective feelings (Proverbs 3:5-6; 14:12; 28:26a; Jeremiah 10:23; 17:9; 2 Timothy 4:1-4). They do what is right in their own eyes.
Is it any wonder that chaos reigns?
