Unspoken Language

Saturday, Dec. 3                      

I mentioned above that language is the best tool in communicating with others.  But there are other tools—facial expression, other body language, and attitude, which we often try to hide—usually unsuccessfully.  We can even communicate by maintaining silence.  All of these can be used deliberately—for good or for bad—and they can also reveal our real feelings when our words send a different message.  As Jer. 17:9 says, our hearts are deceitful and desperately wicked.  Ideally, we would all be 100 % straight forward and  all feelings would be couched in love.  That won’t happen is this life, but it’s an absolute certainty in the next life.  It will be nice to walk down the streets of the New Jerusalem and have no barriers between us and our fellow saints.  Nothing to hide, nothing to be ashamed of, everything positive and honoring to God.
