We've talked about respect and we've talked about communication. Now we will talk about respectful communication.
It is highly important to show respect within your communication. What does that look like?
Look at the person to whom you are talking or listening.
Don't cut him off as he is trying to say something.
Don't force an issue. Sometimes a little space and/or time is needed to obtain clear thinking. However, don't let too much time pass, either.
Keep private things private. Don't go and share private conversations with your friends.
Share your needs or desires as requests and not demands.
Allow difference of opinion. You are your spouse don't have to think alike on everything.
1 Peter 2:17a
Honour all men.
