How’s Your Delivery?

by Lee Buford on December 2, 2010

Tone and delivery are key components in any conversation or dialogue. Your message will be much better received if you open the conversation in a genuine, endearing manner, especially if your ultimate goal is to obtain something from the person with whom you’re conversing.

You’d be hard pressed to find a better blueprint or example to follow than that of Paul’s writing to Philemon…

4 I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, 5because I hear of your love and of the faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints, 6and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ. 7For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.

Consider what your reaction might be if you received a letter or email with such a greeting. Chances are you’d gladly offer up whatever is being asked of you. You’d be quick to respond and happy to do so.

You’d run through a wall for this guy!

Think about this the next time you write to or speak with someone. What type of response can you expect?

How’s your delivery?
