The two most important types of communication are between man and God and between human beings. Communication is more than just our ability to talk, but also to listen. As we communicate with God, the first part of that communication is listening. God’s primary ways of communication with us are through His Word (Romans 10:17) and by the Holy Spirit (John 14:26). God speaks to all believers through the vehicle of the Bible, which is all we need to equip us for the Christian life (2 Timothy 3:16).
Below are some furtehr scriptures to help us understand the importance of communication.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness,
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer
