Do you know how to identify God talk vs. serpent talk? It is easy to slip into serpent talk when talking over negative feelings with a friend or trusted accountability person. Really, I know. I’ve done it too.
“Do You Know Kingdomspeak?” is an article I wrote that was published in the March 2010 Ministry Today magazine. The principles and guidelines shared there are ones I’m still practicing.
In the article you’ll find tips for focusing on God talk and avoiding serpent talk as you:
- Recognize the difference between complaining and sharing a concern
- Learn the key ingredient in each type of talk—God talk and serpent talk
- Discern how to lead another from serpent talk into God talk
- Discover what the outcome looks like in each type of talk
- And more…
Becoming a safe person to process with is something many of us desire to leave as a spiritual legacy. I hope you find the Ministry Today article helpful in reaching that goal.
Now it’s your turn: What have you learned it is the most dangerous outcome of serpent talk? What did you find helpful in the Ministry Today article?
