Different message?

I was reminded yesterday that even if you’re in the same room as other people, see the same things, hear the same words, and experience the same atmosphere, each person there will probably take different things from what they saw/heard/experienced.

That is why it’s important that when we communicate with others (regardless of the method of communication), it is important that we ensure the message we relate is understood by those receiving that message, simply because we all pick up on different things in different ways.

So in summary, present your message using whatever communication methods you want, but get those you’ve given your message to, to repeat to you a summary of your message. That way, if your message hasn’t been fully understood, you can then present it in a different way, maybe using a different medium, to try to get your message across.

Go and make followers of all the nations. Baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to do all the things I have told you. And I am with you always, even to the end of the world.

Matthew 28:19-20 (NLV)
