“Christian Communication:” Unfolds the particulars of Ephesians 4 and Proverbs 18 for communication basics. Your “heart attitudes” are the overall concerns that direct your communication choices: do you have Ephesians 4:1-6 concerns in mind when you communicate with others? Communication involves listening as well as speaking: “To be an attentive listener you must not demand or expect to be on center stage.” Ephesians 4:25-32 lays out four rules of verbal communication: falsehood vs. truth, bitterness vs. reconciliation, unwholesome vs. edifying words, malicious vs. gracious talk.
