Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

lines of communication...

lines of communication

Keep the lines of communication open.

It has been estimated that
from the first 'good morning'
to the last 'good night,'
the average person engages in
30 conversations a day;
some of you average more than that,
some of you, less.
Statisticians have estimated
that each of us will spend
13 years of our life talking,
and every day, our words
could write a book of 50-60 pages.
In a year, if we are just average,
we could author 264 books
of over 200 pages, just with our words.
You can do more than that
if you can speak in excess of
300 words per minute,
as some of us are able to do,
or if you talk incessantly at any speed.”

- John MacArthur

Communication involves listening as well as talking.

It is much easier to speak first,
thinking you will listen later.
But often, speaking first means
losing the opportunity to listen at all.”

- John A. Younts
