08/08/2021

Communication that Builds Up Instead of Tears Down Our Relationships.

1. Be Quick to Listen
Proverbs 1:5 NASB20 – A wise person will hear and increase in learning, And a person of understanding will acquire wise counsel,
 
2 How-tos:
1. Listen to hear the heart.
2. Ask clarification questions BEFORE reacting wrongly!
 
2. Be Slow to Speak
Ephesians 4:29 NET – You must let no unwholesome word come out of your mouth, but only what is beneficial for the building up of the one in need, that it may give grace to those who hear.
 
2 How-tos:
1. Think through the “Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How” BEFORE opening your mouth.
2. Always, always hit the “bullseye” of the fruit of the Holy Spirit!
 
3. Be Slow to Get Angry
Ephesians 4:26-27 NASB20 26 BE ANGRY, AND [YET] DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and do not give the devil an opportunity.
 
There is a difference between anger and “sinful” anger.
 
2 How-tos:
1. Count to 10 (or 100) and once again, ask clarification questions BEFORE reacting wrongly!
2. Help each other. When needed, ask, “Can I have a redo?”
