SUMMARY: Stimulate the thinking of your listeners, leaving them with the feeling that they learned something worthwhile.
HOW TO DO IT:
Consider what your listeners already know. Rather than simply repeating what they have heard before, help them to look at the topic from a fresh perspective.
Research and meditate. When possible, include less-familiar facts or current events to illustrate key ideas. Think deeply about your material and the connection between the material and the facts you intend to cite.
Show the usefulness of your message. Explain how Scriptural points can help your listeners in their daily lives. Discuss specific situations, attitudes, and actions that are relevant to your listeners.
