Don’t you just love James?
Understand this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Let everyone be quick to hear [be a careful, thoughtful listener] … James 1:19a AMP
Tough one. Yeah.
It’s just so easy to always be “on” when it comes to talking. We’re either talking or thinking about what we will say next. Today, let’s set all the talking aside and focus on listening.
Spend the day just thinking about what it really means to listen. What happens when someone listens well? How does that impact the speaker and the listener?
Lord, God, please walk with us as we learn to be better listeners. Help us to hear the heart of what is being said behind the words spoken. Show us the importance of listen well. In Jesus’ name, amen.
