Want to Start a Fight? Vlog #32 with Greg Johnson
During this vlog, Greg talks about how to start a fight with our words. Using the "You" word is a perfect way to get someone angry and defensive. "You did this," "You took my stuff," and "You are so dumb," are examples of the way we attack others with our speech. The book of James tells us to be slow to speak and quick to listen. Instead of the accusatory "You" we should start our sentences with a more humbling, "I" word. "I was wondering if I could ask you a question about something," "I lost my stuff, do you you have any idea where it might be?" An I with a question following it creates at totally different reaction. It's an invitation to talk not an accusation.
