Listening - A form of Love

"Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear.... " James 1:9

Do you live in a state of uneasy truce with others?

Are you making your home a heaven or an outpost of hell?

Do you communicate well with others?

Listening is a lost art!

We hear what is said, but we do not listen.

We as a people are so hungry for someone to listen to us, that we will call for appointments and pay someone to listen to us.

Do you wish that sometimes someone would listen to you - really listen - to you?

God listens!

God listens and we do not have to pay!

When the scriptures was written they knew that God is a listener.

"This shall be written for the generations to come; and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.

For He hath looked down from the height of the sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth;

To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;

To declare the the name of the Lord in Zion, and His praise in Jerusalem;" Psalm 102: 18-21

God is able to detect the faintest signals for help from a hurting man, woman or child.

God can distinguish between the groans and sobs; as we sob, and knows that we need the Lord's help.

Jesus is the master listener!

The more that we become acquainted with God, the more we become aware of His listening skills.

Caring is more important than just knowing!

Caring is listening.

Listening is taking the other seriously.

Listening with love is allowing the other person to become.

When we listen with love we are accepting the other person just as they are.

Love begins from you and me.

Love comes from what God has already done in our life.

Listening is love in action!

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." I John 4:11
