Have you noticed that men and women have different ways of expression. Women tend to be more expressive but men generally tend to use few words only. They prefer to stick to their computers, newspaper, TV or others.
In the first few years of our marriage we tend to learn each others way of communication. After which we take it a bit more easier. Sometimes we may say something but our spouse understands it in a different way leading to arguments.
The division in the language and communication began at the Tower of Babel. People struggled to understand and misunderstood each other. I personally believe that this confusion continues to be seen in families today.
As a women when you approach your husband for an issue try to find out if that would be the best time. Be sensitive to his needs or whether if he is mentally or physically tired. Don’t go with a demanding attitude. Bible says “It is better to dwell in a corner of a rooftop than in a house shared with a contentious woman” (Prov 25:24) You will never be able to win a man with an argument.
It is important that you bring God’s language into your life. His language is the Word of God. It says in Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” If we follow this instruction it will help us to be away from lot of problems and confusions.
By Faith involve God into every situations in your life. He will change your Tower of Babel into a Pentecost experience where people spoke one language in one accord. At Pentecost everyone understood the message in his own language.
There in God, we will enjoy the peace of God in our lives. I hope, pray and desire that the language of God will change every family and bring each one of us deeper in knowing HIM.
