Too Much Talking

Do your words get you introuble? Let's talk about communication.
Do your words get you introuble? Let's talk about communication.
The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, But the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.
Proverbs 15:28 NASB

Recently I read a book called Keep It Shut (I posted a review here on the blog), and it's had me accutely aware of how easy it is to miscommunicate. Despite how easily angered/offended most of us are, it's really easy to mean well but say something that riles people up. In this episode I wanted to explore that.

Highlighted Scenarios & Thoughts

  • Culture plays a major role in how we communicate (e.g., I have offended people by saying "ma'am/sir" and I have offended people by not saying "ma'am/sir")
  • Our past can cause us to be sensitive about certain topics (e.g., I have a male friend who is 5'2"; he goes from 0 to 100 when he perceives someone to be referencing his height)
  • We are each responsible for our own self: it is my responsiblity to manage my expectations and to express when something bothers me; it is also my responsibility to respect others and try to understand their view point
  • There are lots of Bible verses about the dangers of the tongue!
