Patience In Communication


communicate
There is a famous movie line…
My parents generation know it from a movie called “Cool Hand Luke”.
My generation knows it from a movie called “Major Payne”.
Both generations have heard the line…
Both generations still struggle with the concept.

The line…
“What we have here is a failure to communicate.”
Failure. To. Communicate.

In all my years of ministry I have learned many things…
but one of the most valuable is this…
Satan attacks communication.

He knows that if he can destroy communication between two parties…
that everything will break down.
Everything.

Discouragement sets in when we don’t communicate clearly with each other.
Failure is unavoidable when we don’t communicate clearly with each other.
Conflict is the destination when we don’t communicate clearly with each other.

The question that we must then answer is this…
What do we do with our discouragement… failure… and conflict?

Satan intends for it to tear us apart…
But I think God wants to use it to help bring us together.

Genesis 50:20…
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good…

Sometimes we just need to be patient enough to discover the good.
When we fail to communicate… because it’s going to happen…
we must be patient… patient enough to discover what God is teaching us in that moment.

Don’t procrastinate patience in communication… it pays off.

What areas of your life do you need to be patient in your communicating?
Your marriage?

Your kids?
Your ministry?
Your work?
Your friendships?
