The Single Life Workshop, Part 2

whisper

 

As I mentioned in a recent post, not long ago my friend Sara launched a local workshop for singles under the covering of her church and pastor. I signed up right away, and am eager to share what I’m learning with you.

We recently completed session two. I absolutely adored it; the teaching was beyond eye-opening. It was all about living a “nothing hidden” lifestyle in relationships. A married couple shared their experience of when they began dating, and lessons they learned.

The teaching started off back in the garden with Adam and Eve. When sin entered the world, so did shame and guilt and hiding and feelings of not being good enough. There, understanding was opened and they saw their nakedness. They were ashamed of not only what they had done, but who they were.

Sadly, we have carried that shame with us. We carry it into every space and every relationship in our lives. We don’t intend to live this way, but so often we do. It leads to tremendous damage in our relationships.

So does the tongue. There are countless verses about the tongue. It houses much more power than we think or remember. I know I can forget or underestimate its power. I can be careless with my words. I can be flippant and even hurtful sometimes. That kind of speech will never make for a successful relationship of any kind.

The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouths of fools pour out folly. Proverbs 15:2
