We’ve been using some humorous stories to illustrate communication principles we can all learn from. Communication is how we stay connected to each other. Anita spent most of last week visiting our daughter’s family in Nashville, Tennessee. I missed her but we stayed connected via telephone each day. I learned what she was doing with the grand kids, and she was learning how things were going back here in our daily calls. That communication kept us connected.
A degeneration in communication takes place when we forget what we were talking about and get sidetracked by other issues. When someone says something that offends me, I sometimes take off after that offense and forget where we were going with the communication. John Bevere calls picking up an offense the Bait of Satan. We need to refuse to pick it up. Let’s be careful with our communication this weekend.
