God's Man | A Poor Medium

If you are disgruntled with someone, don't process that with them over email. Email is a poor medium for that type of communication. The same is true for Facebook, blog posts, tumblr, twitter.

For my Christians family see Matthew 18.

"If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. (Matthew 18:15-17 ESV)

If you are unable to clearly articulate your concern face to face then why do you think that email is going to be received any better.

My response will always be to meet face to face. I don't do email well. Even though I am a huge nerd I don't think technology helps us communicate well. It helps you to communicate faster but not smarter or with love.

If you must write something than do it by hand. And deliver it personally. Allow time for questions.

In short learn being in a family means you will disagree. It also means that you work through it because you value that relationship.

I apologize for this long post but my heart is heavy this morning and it has nothing to do with the election but with the elect.
