Summary: Today we have many problems that come from a lack of wisdom and poor communication skills. We need to polish our communication skills and learn to put out fires and emotions by good conversation and communication.

#1 PUTTING OUT FIRES: POLISHING OUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS!

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

I will email this in three parts, but the lesson being taught is a multiple part series.

Introduction:

Today we have many problems that come from a lack of wisdom and poor communication skills. We need to polish our communication skills and learn to put out fires and emotions by good conversation and communication.

James warns us the tongue is full of deadly poison.

James again warns that the tongue can ignite many fires that bring great destruction.

Let us look at some literary tools and devices both good and bad and let us come to the Father justified by our words.

A word can be very powerful. Your words can launch you to new heights.

Your words can become a trap and a snare.

Few ever learn the power of a word.

GOD TEACH US TO CONTROL OUR TONGUE AND PUT OUT FIRES.

Matthew 12:36 (quickview)  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

27 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

LEARN TO BE A GOOD LISTENER! PRACTICE GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS!

Could you join my team and pass this on to another?

Words are tools. Words can aid us to accomplish God’s works, or we can hinder God’s work by poor word usage.

Your brain should be in gear before you ever open your mouth.

Words can never be recalled. A word is a shadow of a deed!

A word spoken in due season, how good it is!

But what about an ill word at an ill season?

Once a word has been allowed to escape, it cannot be recalled.

Proverbs 18:21 (quickview)  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

I. GOD TEACH US TO CONTROL OUR TONGUE AND PUT OUT FIRES.

TEXT:

Matthew 12:36 (quickview)  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

27 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

1 Timothy 6:18 (quickview)  That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, WILLING TO COMMUNICATE.

Hebrews 13:16 (quickview)  But to do good and TO COMMUNICATE FORGET NOT: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

A. Communicate:

*** share *** to convey knowledge or information *** to make known

*** to reveal by a clear sign *** to open into each other

*** to cause to pass from one to another

*** to transmit information, thought, or feeling so that it is satisfactorily received or understood

B. Communication:

*** the act or instance of transmitting, *** information shared, written or spoken

*** a process where information is shared through word, symbols, signs or behavior.

*** personal rapport *** to express ideas effectively

C. Some people the only time their mouth is empty is when they are changing feet?

II. GOD GAVE MAN A HINT AS TO WHAT IS IMPORTANT:

GOD GAVE MAN TWO EARS AND ONE MOUTH.

WISDOM MIGHT BE FOUND IN LISTENING TWICE AS MUCH AS WE SPEAK.

James 1:19 (quickview)  Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man BE SWIFT TO HEAR, SLOW TO SPEAK, and slow to wrath.
