But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ. 1 Cor. 15:57
What is your favorite communication tool these days? Let me guess: messaging? It’s become the default, hasn’t it?
What’s strange is the way that has crept into our everyday conversations. I’ve noticed that even when I’m talking with people in the same room, we often talk without making eye contact… it’s as if we’re messaging. I wouldn’t have thought something as simple as a “faster and easier” way to communicate would wreak havoc on inter-personal connection!
Remember when emails were a big deal? Cell phone calls? Landline phone calls? Letters? I doubt any of us remembers telegrams.
The other day someone called me. They said they’d begun to write an email, then decided just to call. I loved it! We should all do that more. I encourage you, look each other in the eye, pick up the phone, go out and meet with someone face to face.
What does the Bible say about communication? James 1:19 "Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger…” Instead of trying to push our message, we should focus on the other person and their intentions.
As an FYI, I will be migrating away from WhatsApp by the end of January. I’m available on Signal, Telegram, iMessage, FaceTime, Skype or a good old-fashioned phone call. I’d love to hear from you!
We Win!! Danny Cullins
