Talking To Yourself Doesn't Make You Crazy

. .

Why do people talk to themselves?

Some people will say. . .it’s because they’re starved for intelligent conversation which most certainly reflects on the people around them.

Others say that people who talk to themselves are a hamburger short of a Happy Meal.

While both scenarios may be true. . .I would submit to you. . .that talking to yourself. . .is not only ok. . .it’s the right thing to do. . .scripturally speaking.

Ephesians 5:19 says:

“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.”

Speaking to yourself. . .making melody in your heart to the Lord.

Some would say. . .this verse is talking about singing to the Lord.  Yes, that’s true but it’s not all the truth.

The Greek word for speaking also means:

“to utter a voice or emit a sound;  to speak; to talk and to use words in order to declare one's mind and disclose one's thoughts”

In fact, the next verse reveals what we’re to say to ourselves.

Ephesians 5:20 says:

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Now you know what you’re to talk about. . .and remember. . .

It’s okay to talk to yourself. . .it’s okay to answer yourself. . .but just don’t say “Huh?” when doing so.  That is a joke.

Speak on!
