Breakdown In Communication

A breakdown in communication may cause serious problems. We must learn how to speak, listen, and respond appropriately.

A breakdown in communication is not good and may lead to unpleasant circumstances. Talk is cheap, but even if no one is listening what good is that? The results may be devastating. God gave us a mouth and ears to use wisely. Please allow me to share a few practical examples.

First, the Russians are attempting to invade the Ukraine country. There is no good reason for this atrocity accept for some deranged power hungry dictator. Vladimir Putin is listening to nobody and consequently thousands of people are getting killed.

Second, Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy is asking for help with humanitarian and military weapons and the West, including the United States is refusing to honor their request. President Biden is refusing to defend Democracy.

My mother is from Romania. As a teenager she risk her life along with a lot of other good people to come to America. When they saw the Statute of Liberty from the ship tears with joy started to roll down their eyes. Freedom at last, but now, President Biden is giving it all a way. It is a sad day in American history while we tip our hats to the Ukraine people. Where is democracy when you need it the most?

Third, let’s talk about the church. People go to church to have fellowship with other believers and learn about God. As the preacher or priest shares a powerful message from the Bible, the expectation is for people to apply these Bible truths to their own life. But different people respond differently and some completely ignore what they heard.

Finally fourth, baseball. Who could ever forget baseball? The key to winning a baseball game is communication and signs. Everybody must know what the signs are and respond accordingly.

From the dugout the manager signals his intentions. The catcher sees the sign, relays it to the pitcher, and other players. Then, depending on whose standing in the batter’s box, more signals determine how the game will be played.

On the other hand the batter looks at his first base coach for where he should hit the ball. Singles, doubles, triples, and home runs, might determine the out come of the game. It’s debatable how the guy holding that magic wond responds.

Humanly speaking, people are all members of one big happy family. We must learn how to work together to make the world a better place to live.
