God communicates to us through His law

Godlike thoughts can succeed in communicating to others even when our spoken words don't.

"Why won't he listen to me?" "Why doesn't she understand what I'm trying to say?" "How can I tell them...?" Have you ever felt that trying to get a thought across to someone was hopeless or fruitless? Whether motivated by a desire to teach simple rules to our children, a need to inform a group of associates, or a longing to communicate spiritual truths to all mankind, we needn't feel burdened with responsibility for that communication.

But how, you might ask, can concepts be imparted to someone without personal intercommunication? In Christ Jesus' ministry we find instances of such wordless communication. For example, in the case of a woman with "an issue of blood," he perceived her need after she had merely touched his robe in a crowd. See Mark 5:25–34. In the noisy clamor for Jesus' attention, no words passed between the two of them until after she was healed.
