Listen Fully

He who answers a matter before he hears it,
    it is folly and shame to him.

Proverbs 18:13 MEV

Most of the time we just want someone to listen to us. It is not necessary for them to give advice, or try to fix the problem. What we really want is just their time. We want to know that we have been heard. We want to know that what we are saying has value and that the person sitting with us really cares. The best way to show that is by truly listening to what the other is saying.

I have seen where counselors actually have an individual repeat what the other counselee had said to show that they were listening and that they care. There was nothing more important to me when my dad died than those who just offered an ear to listen.

Well-meaning people can rush to an answer when there was no question. Lord, help us to listen, really listen to others is our plea. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Father God,

Thank You for always listening to us. Help us to listen to others like You listen to us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

  1. Donna, great message and thanks for sharing video of Thomas Rhett. This is my first time hearing him, and now following him on Spotify. Have a great day/night and remain safe. How are you?

  2. You are quite welcome. May God be glorified. I am glad you like him. I thought it was a good song to go along with the message. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.
    Thanks also for asking how I was. I am ok. Been having some physical issues but nothing too big for our God. Will hopefully have some answers in the near future. Prayers are always appreciated. Sending you a hug and love in Christ, your sister Donna Marie.
