Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Intentional Communication

September 20th, 2022 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is Intentional Communication.

Relationships have opportunity to flourish when communication between two parties is open, honest, and frequent.

Good communication is vital to healthy relationships as nutritious food is vital to a healthy body.

This is true in our relationship with God. First Thessalonians 5:17 instructs us to “pray continually.” This is an important part of staying connected with God.

This is also true of our relationships with others. Acts 2 reveals the early church as a thriving church. Verse 46 says that one of the dynamics of this growing church was that they continued to meet together in the temple courts every day. The Lord was adding to their number daily those who were being saved.

Intentional Communication is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
