No Homiletic Hash-Slinging

Preach Wisely. “Because the preach was wise, he . . . Sought to find out acceptable words” (Ecc. 12:9-10). Not rude, loose, and indigested stuff, in a slovenly manner brought forth, lest the sluttery of the cook should turn the stomachs of the guests” (William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour, p. 65).
