What are the consequences of poor communication?

Proverbs 18:21The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

James 3:8-10But no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!

2 Timothy 2:14Remind everyone about these things, and command them in God’s presence to stop fighting over words. Such arguments are useless, and they can ruin those who hear them.

Proverbs 26:6Trusting a fool to convey a message is like cutting off one’s feet or drinking poison!

Poor communication almost always leads to conflict, quarreling, gossip, rumors, and hurt feelings. Learning to tame your tongue and choose your words carefully is strategic to good communication.
