Lessons In Virtue: Language
Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV) Be ye not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?
It is often claimed that marriages break because of a lack of communication. However, more than that, marriages do not break simply because of poor communication but rather because of conflicting language.
By this, I do not mean tribal dialect. No. A couple might communicate frequently yet fight each other every day.
The Born Again Christian walk has a very distinctive language and it is important that you marry someone who understands it.
Take for example the language of faith. A spouse might declare in faith that he or she intends to expand the family business within a month. But because the other party does not understand the language of faith, might size him or her up and their past failings and declare that it is not possible. That alone becomes a source of contention between the two.
When the language is the same, their thought life usually tends to be one: they think the same way and sometimes no longer need to speak in order to know what the other wants.
That is why silence makes the real conversation between friends, not the saying but the never needing to say. Praise God!

GOLDEN NUGGET: The Born Again Christian walk has a very distinctive language and it is important that you marry someone who understands it.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this wisdom. My spouse and I have the same language; we understand each other deeper than just speech. By this we walk in the beauty of marital communion. To the glory of your name. Amen.
