Communication can be difficult because each individual may have a different background, experiences, and sometimes even culture, which all affect communication.In addition, 60 to 90% of all communication consists of body language, eye contact, facial expressions, and tone rather than words.By our words, we can develop a beautiful and prosperous marriage that glorifies God.
The husband must learn what makes the wife happy, what makes her sad, and what angers her and use this information to build her up and communicate with her better.
Even though Peter speaks to husbands, this is certainly true for wives as well.
Whoever said, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me,” was very mistaken.
Many people carry great hurt and pain from words spoken over them years ago.
Psalm 19:1-4 God speaks to us through nature, telling us of his great glory and splendor.
He also speaks to us through his Son, who came to the earth not only to die for our sins but also to give us the Father’s words.
Jesus said: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4) Yes, the Bible is God’s ‘Operations Manual’ for mankind.
And should one ever desire to live “more abundantly”, as Jesus teaches in John , then it’s time to follow the Creator’s instruction book – the Bible.
When he created the heavens and the earth, he did it by communicating.
He said, “Let there be light.” In fact, through nature he speaks to us every day.
Communication is a skill that must be learned and practiced in order to have a successful marriage.
