Dumb and Dumber

It's adjective day in Greek! 

Adjectives are indispensable. Just think of all the movie titles we'd be without if there weren't any adjectives in English:

  • Sleepless in Seattle
  • Obsessed
  • Unfaithful
  • Big
  • Picture Perfect
  • Clueless
  • Closer

and my favorite:

  • Dumb and Dumber

In the New Testament, Paul's use of adjectives in 1 Tim. 3 to describe overseers is another good example of how necessary these little words are:

  • Blameless
  • Temperate 
  • Prudent
  • Respectable
  • Hospitable
  • Teachable (or, able to teach)
  • Gentle
  • Peaceable

Gotta love them adjectives!
