Language is  God’s greatest gift to human

It’s not the property of a nation or man

You can’t posses it like land

Or keep it like a jewel on your hand


The pure languages like Latin and Sanskrit are dead

The resourceful ones like English and Spanish are spread

Every language has got many a dialect and accent

No dialect or accent can claim to be perfect


Politeness is the hall mark of any civilized language

Rudeness is intolerable for man in any age

Language is not the monopoly of a tribe

It only helps us to speak and scribe


Language helps us to know human history

How humans acquired is a great mystery

It is a great binding force

And human beings’ wonderful resource

  • Cheeky Missy

    Fascinating discussion on language. God says in His Word that all men spoke the same language until He confounded their language so that they could not understand each other; they were disobeying Him....instead of dispersing and filling the earth, they congregated to build a tower to reach to heaven, lest they be dispersed. So the Lord came down and confounding the languages, they did disperse, unable to continue working together building. It is in Genesis 11, the first 10 or so verses.
