Acts 12:14 14 When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed she ran back without opening it and exclaimed, “Peter is at the door!”

We live in a day where we text, message, twitter and e-mail people.  It seems that using our cell phones to actually make a call is a burden to us.  We would rather just send a text.  We might think it’s more convenient for all involved or maybe we think we’re saving time.  There is something about the human voice.  We can identify people by their voice.  Yes, our cell phones also identify who is texting or calling but, when we hear a voice, we hear more than just mere words.  We hear the emotions behind it whether it be pain, anger, love or any other emotion.  The girl at the door didn’t need Peter to identify himself; she knew his voice.  The voice and the expression in the voice gives meaning to the words.  When we actually speak vocally to one another we are actually communication more than just words.  We are putting real meaning behind the words.  There are times when just sending the words electronically is the right thing to do.  We need to have discernment.  Let us slow down a little and ask God how he wants us to communicate from time to time.
