4 Rules of Communication
How does it work? How do your relationships go?
This Post is one of the foundations of our life.
Perhaps you have heard of these before?
I hope you can print them out and post them wherever they might be a reminder to you.
My husband and I have taken some Biblical Counseling courses over the years, and this is the most valuable information I daily practice in my life.
This is the why..
"Good relationships are not built because of an absence of problems.
"Ephesians 4:25-32..Paul gives four very effective "Rules of Communication."
Great for preventing and solving problems...
1.) BE HONEST
( no deceit, no contrast between tones, body language and content of what we say.)
( no innunedos, speak the truth..)
( getting angry, but not sinning, Not letting our wrath, fury, exasperation, etc. last until the sun goes down.)
(No stewing, not using anger to attack others, not giving Satan a foothold)
(anger is energy to be used to solve problems)
(stop clamming up)
(deal with problems today)
... SIX Questions to ask before bringing up a Sticky Problem...
1.)Do I have the facts straight?
2.)Should love hide it? Is it sinful?
3.)Is my timing right?
4.)Is my attitude right? Am I trying to help the other person?
5.)Are my words loving?
6.)Have I prayed for God's help?
4.)ACT; DON'T REACT
We can't change the other person, BUT, we can change how we respond.
There is so much more we can learn from this passage in Ephesians.
