2014-02-10-10-14-28We all know that good communication is imperative if you want to have good interpersonal relationships.  And the Bible tells us in Ephesians 4:29:  Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to use in edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Corrupt in this passage means rotten or putrid, like fruit.  It can also mean “pervert the meaning of.”  I had an experience the other day of corrupted communication between my husband and I…and I can’t believe that he figured it out!

I just got a smart phone, and I didn’t even use my dumb phone that much, so there’s a great learning curve here.  I needed wine for my Butternut Squash Risotto, and tried to message Mike using my new phone.  I typed–again and again–“Please pick up cheap wine in a box.”  My phone was using Spanish predictive messaging and this was what came up.

It was edifying to me that this man managed to decipher the code and brought some wine for the risotto.  (Which was great and why I’m attaching the recipe.)
