True Communication

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.”

1 Corinthians 13:1

Have you ever spoken to a parking meter? Or poured out your heart to a street lamp? No? It is equally ineffective and pointless to lack a loving attitude when encountering other people. Love is the driving force of my existence and my faith in God. Communication is a vital factor between people. It is possible to sometimes utter empty words and phrases which goes into one ear and immediately flies out the other. Aren't we familiar with that? Even a truly heavenly being like an angel of God would, without love, only bring forth the sound of a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. How much more could even simple words, uttered with love as its motivation, make a deep impression within our hearts. It has nothing to do with well-formulated, superficial words, but rather with truth, clarity and compassion. The Pharisees in Jesus' time were of the opinion that they would only be heard by God if they spoke many, impressive words (Matthew 6:5-7). Sometimes one can even be utterly silent, allowing one's heart to speak without words. What does love actually look like? It is the personal reference to the only Source of love. And this Source is a Person and has a Name: Jesus Christ! God's words are powerful and has eternal significance. Believers are able to communicate significant blessings. For example, in the proclamation of the “good news”. Whoever speaks of love, speaks of God (1 John 4:16). When you speak to other people about your faith and salvation, you are practising love.
