This word came up in a conversation this week…hoopla.
The person’s response to my question was, “No, not any more. I am done with all the hoopla.”
I totally get it as I’ve seen “all the hoopla” too.
This word has stuck with me through the week.
Hoopla by definition is “talk or writing that is designed to get people excited about and interested in something.” It is “used in American English to refer to a kind of bustling commotion, and later, as a term for sensationalist hype.”
Now…why am I bringing this up?
Because as Christian speakers and authors, our words whether spoken or written should not be considered as hoopla.
Let’s look at what our words should be:
Ephesians 4:29 (NIV): “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
Colossians 4:6 (NIV): “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”
