Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by Dusty, Sep 20, 2007.

  1. Thought

    Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but
    only what is helpful for building others up according to their
    needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
    -- Ephesians 4:29

    The goal in Christian communication is not just clarity. Neither
    is the goal just to be understood. The goal is not even just to be
    truthful. The goal is to be appropriate, encouraging, and uplifting
    to others based on the needs of that other person.

    Tender Shepherd, give me a heart that is pure so that my words
    may be pure. Give me a heart that is kind so that my words may be
    kind. Give me a heart that is full of joy and encouragement so that
    I may share these with those you bring to my path and with whom I
    share conversation. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
  2. I fel like I have heard a golden trumpet. I have been spending time on other forums and this is a wonderful thread in which to rest and get clarity. Thank you for your words, they are an answer to prayer for appropriate scripture. Many thanks Dusty.
  3. Blessings to You Trinity and may I extend a warm welcome to you as well.

    God knows just what we need.
