One size fits all?

I have realized over the years that you can have multiple children under the same roof, but you can not treat them all the same. A punishment that works for one will not work for another. The way you teach one will not help the other.

It is the same with adults. The way you communicate with one person, strangely will not apply to the next.

 I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. 1Corinthians 9:22

An opinionated, confrontational person can silence an honest communicator and push them away. Be careful not to force your ideas and knowledge on others. Be kind, gentle and realize that others have ideas and knowledge of their own. It's the key to good communication and a good relationship.

This is not a one size fits all world. God made each of us uniquely different. What works for one may not work for another. The one thing that does fit all is LOVE!
