Listen

 “He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”

-Jesus speaking in John 8:47

Proverbs 2:1-2 NKJV My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding

Proverbs 18:13 NKJV He who answers a matter before he hears it, It is folly and shame to him.

I found the following cute quotes online. Only one had the actual author’s name listed. So often we think too quickly and then open our mouths to offer advice without giving the proper time to just listen.

“Lead by listening – to be a good leader you have to be a great listener.”

“Listen and silent are spelled with the same letters. Think about it.”

“God speaks to those who take time to listen, and He listens to those who take time to pray.”

“Prayer at its highest is a two-way conversation – and for me the most important part is listening to God’s replies.”

Frank Laubach

Father God,

We come before You today seeking Your help in the area of listening. Help us to listen to You and to truly listen to others. May we be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry (James 1:19). Oh, Lord, we need Your help. We are a broken people. Have mercy on us. You have fashioned us in Your image (Genesis 1:27). May we truly represent You in all that we do (Ephesians 5:1). Guard our mouth (Psalm 141:3) and help us to be more attentive to others. Then we pray that You would supply the right words at the right time for the maximum benefit to those who have entrusted us with their words as You have said that You would (Luke 12:12). We praise You and love You. We thank You for another day and with it another opportunity to come before Your precious throne. Oh, how glorious You are. Thank You for everything. In Jesus’ name we pray.
