Communication = Growth

Sorry it's been a while, Lorie and I were on vacation. Apparently she loves the ocean...

Okay, so today I was listening to one of the radio stations I usually do at work. It's fun because it's Disneyworld music (like the stuff you hear waiting in line, it's always happy and upbeat). While listening yesterday the "Spaceship Earth" ride at EPCOT was on. The full 20 minute ride. It was fun to listen to it and try to remember what was going on.

But the big key was this. I noticed something for the ride, I just hadn't really thought about it. The entire ride it about man's progress throughout the centuries. And here's the kicker. Every time we move forward, it ties back to communication. We leaped forward when we had a system of mathematics to communicate amounts to each other, we moved forward with the movable type press, the telephone, the internet. Every leap forward we take ties back to our improvement in communication.

So as you're at school, work, whatever it is, if you want to get further ahead, think about how you can communicate better. After all, Jesus is the prime example of this. For hundreds of years God communicated through priests and prophets, then He came and spoke to us Himself and opened up the lines of prayer for everyone to speak to Him directly. And relationships with God have never been the same...
