Day 21 - Troubleshooting Communication

For the last week, we have been learning the importance of Communicating from the heart and understanding that it isn't always easy to do. There are going to be times when you can't always control both sides of a conversation. Even Jesus faced these challenges and again, we can learn from his example. Tom Holladay identifies several instances where Jesus dealt with problems of communication and offers some solid advice:

When Criticized - Offer Clear, Confident Responses

When Honestly Doubted - Offer Proof

When Ridiculed - Remain Silent

When Backed Into a Corner - Turn on the Light

When Rejected - Go Elsewhere

Tom offers many examples to illustrate these points throughout the chapter. Spend some time reading through them and check out the scriptures he references. There is a lot to be learned there.
