I cannot help but read church signs as I drive past them. Here’s what I read on one yesterday: “‘Stimulate one another to love and good deeds.’ -Hebrews 10:24”
If the problem is mine, please tell me, but I think that in today’s culture there might be a more helpful word than “stimulate” for the message I believe this church intends to convey.
“Stimulate” is the choice of the New American Standard version. Others translate the Greek variously as “provoke,” “spur,” “motivate,” “encourage.” The King James Version, in case you are interested, uses “provoke.”
I suppose, on the other hand, such word choice might stimulate an interest in what is happening with this congregation.
