Home Improvement Week 3

Home Improvement
Week 3

Psalms 127:1 NKJV
1 Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.

1. Communication with God
2. Communication between couples or parents
3. Communication between parents and children

1. Communication with God

Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Let’s walk out of this building today determining that we’re going to read His word, hear His voice through His word, and talk to God on a daily basis.

2. Communication between Couples or Parents

1. Effective communication is something we can all improve in our own lives.

2. Communication is one of the most important skills required for a successful life.

Luke 6:45 NKJV
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

As far as the soul is concerned, the mind is the controller—the influence over our emotions and our will. Our emotions are to be subservient to our minds.

If we don’t deliberately make sure our mind is in charge, our emotions will take over by default.

If emotions are in control and running rampant, there’s bound to be chaos, drama, and hurt people.

Our lives under the control of our emotions have no direction.

Isaiah 26:3 NKJV
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.

1. God’s word is saying that you can have your emotions under control.
2. You will have perfect peace in your emotions because your mind is stayed on God and his word.

Proverbs 23:7 NKJV
7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.

We become the sum total of all our thoughts.

Train your mind. Discipline your mind to stay on him.

Keep your mind stayed on the Lord, looking for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He may tell you to tear up the letter, delete the comment, or not write it in the first place.

3. Communication between Parents and Children

Let’s talk to God, our spouse, and our children every day. Let’s mature so that we think before we speak.

I Peter 3:10 NKJV
10 For “He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.

Colossians 4:6 NKJV
6 Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

Ephesians 4:29 NKJV
29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

James 3:2 NKJV
2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
