“Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. ((Isaiah 1:18, NIV 1984).
My Musings – “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.” From the movie “Cool Hand Luke.” Number eleven on the American Film Institute’s top 100 movie quotations of American cinema’s first century.
With more ways to communicate today than ever before, there’s not much of an excuse for failing to communicate. At the same time, it opens up more opportunities for unreasonable communication. And whether the “tongue” we use is in an intimate face-to-face conversation or a relatively anonymous social media post, it can be “a restless evil, full of deadly poison” (James 3:8, NIV 1984).
My Advice – Let’s not fail to be reasonable in whatever means we use to communicate and to whomever we communicate with. Issues are more likely to be resolved by coming together than by driving apart. For when we “reason together” then “what we’ve got here is an opportunity to communicate” well.
