Communication isn’t all we need…
“Kind words are like honey—sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”—Proverbs 16:24 (NLT)
Do you speak words of honey or words of unkindness when a conversation with your spouse gets heated?
Let’s think about this. At that moment when you’re about to step into the dark realm of speaking unkind, painful words to your beloved, you can easily speak words of honey. You can speak words of life that are so sweet to the soul it brings health to the body and healing to your marriage. Words like honey make the toughest conversations sweet and kind and can bring resolution to difficult problems. Imagine ending a conversation on a sweet note instead of the bitter root of unkindness. All you have to do is be the one to say something kind. Now that’s sweet!
Words are cheap the world says. But only if your words are not true. You cant speak truth without a heart rooted in truth. Only a believer of Jesus can speak truth.
For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.
First step to knowing the truth is that recognition of who Jesus is and asking Forgiveness and praying He will come into our heart.
Second step is putting a guard on your mouth. Jesus only said John 12:49 what the Father God told him to say, we need a Godly filter. Especially to the people we love and what to sho the love of God to Psalm 39:1.
“Why is good communication such a hard skill to achieve when it comes to marriage?” The answer is the flesh. We’re constantly wanting to please our fleshly desires instead of pleasing the Lord and our spouse. We have to have the last word or be right in those times when communication gets challenging and heated.
Ask God for help:
You demonstrate Your love for us God. Teach me how to not act selfish in my flesh but be in the Spirit when heated arguments arise between us. Teach me how to speak life and be sweet to each other, so You can be glorified and honored through our marriage. I love You Lord and I am thankful for Your Help, in Jesus’ Name ,Amen.
