Did I Hear You Say…?

Communication is critical and key in our relationships with others.  There’s much more to it than us talking while others listen.  Instead, it is a combination of us speaking, listening, hearing, understanding and following through.  When people speak, listen because they are providing valuable insight into who they really are, what they’re about and what they actually want. 

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh (Luke 6:45).”

Somewhere in what they say, often hidden, is the truth.  Many times this is the truth that we don’t want to hear.  However, it’s likely the truth we need to hear.  So when they reveal that their motives are not right, listen and move on.  Whatever you do, don’t go into denial.  It’s not simply a slip of the tongue.  When he tells you what’s on his mind, believe it.  Unfortunately, we tend to justify words and actions when they are not what we desire or expect to hear.  Instead, ask God to give you a spirit of discernment that you may grasp that which is not readily clear, that you may decipher that which to most is obscure. 

Certainly, there are all types of people on earth.  There’s one for every personality type.  So if we’re truthful, even if that means admitting that truth that you’re a dishonest person, there’s someone out there for you.  So really there’s no need to pull others into our sad, sick little world of deceit (that don’t want to be there).  Someone actually wants to be there too.  If we’re simply honest in our relationships with others, everyone will be better off.  Try being open and honest when communicating needs and agendas to others–please and thank you.

Take care & be blessed…   Please also visit… www.xtreme-fire.com
