I Thessalonians 5:(NCV) 10 Jesus died for us so that we can live together with him, whether we are alive or dead when he comes. 11 So encourage each other and give each other strength, just as you are doing now.
Learn the power of effective communication.
As a person who wears several hats in life, between family, work, and ministry.
I have to confess one of the most critical concerns in the lives of people everywhere is “Effective communication”.
I have had several educational accomplishments and experiential learning lessons. But we as a people really have to learn how to communicate better.
Ineffective communication will destroy your family, your career, and your church Ministry.
How well do you communicate? Or how well do you think you communicate with others?
Yes, I am talking to you today (people) we have issues with communication.
But it’s not a stretch to say that many of us even have the same kinds of shortcomings when it comes to communicating with our families, friends, coworkers, and let us not forget with God.
And we wonder why we live basically unfulfilled lives individually and as related to our significant relationships.
We need the Lord to help us in the development of effective communications.
We need to ask God to help us communicate effectively and clearly.
We need to work on expressing what’s in our hearts in a way that blesses the people around us.
Many times, we practice and function the way we have learned to communicate all of our lives.
And not really taking notice of how ineffective our communication skill sets are with others. Who do you have a real quality relationship with?
Great servant leaders are great communicators, effective communication is a requirement to successfully serve and lead ourselves and others.
Being effective in communication enables you to connect with people on an emotional level.
Those who are effective in communication inspire others to achieve more than ever imagined.
The Lord empowers His servant leaders in the way of effective communication (I Thessalonians 4:16).
Point to ponder
Effective communication is learned then practiced, it’s time to learn the skill sets that bring quality relationships to our lives.
Yes, there is room for God to help us, and many times God moves by helping us develop and prosper in our communication skills.
I pray you will receive today’s insight and have a fantastic week!
