Maybe it’s just me, but don’t we all speak like this these days? Even me, by this simple statement (which in my mind is truth) can be defined as an exaggerated statement not meant to be taken literally.
So, how do we avoid hyperbole? Speak only in truth and love, right? How can you do that today? Let us bring down our use of hyperbole and build up the people of the world to their God-given talents. Amen?
