12. You need to mature in the art of communication if success in marriage is on your mind.
Train yourself in the act of effective and sweet communication has to be acquired in order to have a successful and fruitful relationship. Practice they say makes perfect.
Some do not know how to talk. They talk carelessly without wisdom. Some speak without thinking of the implications of the statements they are making. Go to work on yourself now. The reason why you having been having broken relationships may not be unconnected with your inability to communicate well. It may also be that no one is proposing to you or accepting your proposal because they have been watching the way you talk, and found it repulsive. Think about it.
1. Guard your thoughts.
34 You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. NIV
Your thoughts give birth to your words. We talk as we think.
2. Guard your lips.
3 He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin. NIV
Your experience is connected to your words.
3. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth.
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. NIV
Decide not to harm with your mouth but to edify and bless others.
4. Let your conversation be always full of grace.
6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. NIV
Let your words be words that convey unmerited mercy, adds taste to and preserves relationships as salt does. Anything contrary to that, don’t say it with your mouth. When the person does not merit kind words, speak it in mercy and grace. Seek always to preserve and add taste to a relationship rather than destroy it.
