The Heart of the Matter
It’s at the heart of everything you do. It builds relationships, and it destroys them. No matter how much you try, you can’t avoid it. Whether you’re speaking or silent, you’re communicating. But even with so much practice, effective communication isn’t easy.
The pain caused by miscommunication resonates in your heart for years. That’s why it’s important to develop excellent communication skills. Healthy, mature communication is the revelation of your true self to someone who cares about you . . . beginning with God.
Talk to Him. Listen to Him. Ask Him to help you uncover the source of your communication struggles. Develop healthy communication with Him by being completely honest. When your relationship with Him is right, you’ll find communication to be easier because you’ll be reflecting Christ in everything you do. Let Him express His heart through your words and actions − there’s no better message you could send.
Grace filled words:
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” (Ephesians 4:29)
Additional Scripture: Proverbs 25:11; Colossians 3:16-17
