T hrough social media and cell phones, we can connect with family and friends instantly. We inform and are informed as our feelings and understanding go out to others with the click of a “send” button.
Still, communication doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s an activity between and among people. At its best, it is understood and relatable—a window into the lives of ourselves and others with new and unique vantages.
Jesus was the master of communication, and the words he spoke resonated with others. His messages are as real for us today as they were for those who listened to him. I take my example from Jesus and use communication to share a heart-and-soul connection with others.
The reason I speak to them in parables is that “seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen, nor do they understand.”—Matthew 13:13
