WHEN WISE PEOPLE TALK

They say, Old people has more to say and has more wisdom, that's why we are taught to listen to our parents and grand parents. For they know more of experiences, they've been there. And so they have may things to say and impart to the young ones. Some may be their happy moments, memorable ones, tragic experience , pain , trials and sufferings but bottom line is that each stories have their lessons to learn. 

When Jesus shared a complicated spiritual concept , He simplified it by wrapping it into a story. Jesus stories were about everyday situations his listeners could relate to wedding banquets, wayward children, vineyards. His stories were simple and clear, and the lessons behind them unforgettable. As with everything in life , Jesus is the model of effective communication. He teaches that the best way to relate to others is by tapping into your common experience as human being. 

When wise people speak, they make knowledge attractive -proverbs 15:2 gnt

Yes, I agree with you. Old people have more wisdom culled from long years of experience of overcoming trials in life. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
