Psalm 45

“My tongue is the pen of an expert scribe.” (45:2)

To be a mesmerizing public speaker may be an art, but Dale Carnegie taught that anyone can learn to be an effective speaker. A scribe does not become expert without practice, and neither does a speaker. By listening to great speakers one can learn to use language well, and by listening to great comedians one can learn to use the rhythm of speech to good effect. But the secret to being effective is to speak from your own experience, to share your own story. Those who speak with sincere conviction, focusing on the lesson they want the listener to learn, will be compelling speakers.
