If you have got a mind, a couple of ears and a mouth, you can become a great communicator. It is interesting. Great marriages and bad marriages all face the same issue, communication. But what separates the great ones from the not so great ones is obvious. The great ones have husbands and wives who work at it, who tackle this task tenaciously. Those who have sorry marriages for some reason don’t work at communication. They throw their hands up in the air and say that is just the way it is.
Last weekend C3 Global launched this series of talks called 4KEEPS – Keeping Creativity In Your Marriage. We found out that marriages that really have it going on are made up of spouses who maintain a tireless MWE, a tireless marital work ethic. We also said that to carry forth a tireless marital work ethic, you need creativity. I defined marital creativity as innovative action for qualitative growth. No area in marriage needs innovative action, creativity and work like communication. So goes communication, so goes conflict resolution. So goes communication, so goes sex. So goes communication, so goes intimacy and romance and so on.
Bring back a verse of scripture that I used to open today’s message. This text gives us several communicative options that are out there for the taking for husbands and wives. Let me push the pause button and say something to single adults. Hey, singles, this series is for you. Quite frankly, I meet too many of you who come to the altar ill prepared and clueless as to what it takes to have a great marriage. Ninety-four percent of you will get married at least once. That is what research has revealed. Let’s say, for example, that you are part of the six percent who never get married. Ed bet you know a married person or two. You can give them counsel. You can give them direction. Also, this stuff will help your speaking and listening skills around the office, the apartment complex, at play, whatever.
