A Listening Ear

Psalm 49:1-2 

Most of us can hear, but are we listening? 

Listening is an art. For listening is the ability to give your attention,  thinking and understanding to someone undividedly. 


It’s better to listen to someone for five quality minutes that hear them talk for a whole day without paying any attention. 

God gives us all undivided attention and a listening ear for all the time.

No matter what problems we have and whatever might be the nature of things we are sharing with him, he pays the same attentive interest and awareness. 

We, in return, need to listen to him and not only talk to him. I do believe that when we incline our ears to listen to him as he does to us we will be amazed at his wisdom and simply profound by his understanding of us and our situation.  

I have noticed that people who are careful to listen to God are great at listening to people also. 

Are you a good listener? What can you do differently to become one? 

( See 1 Peter 3:12, 1 John 5:15, Jeremiah 29:12-13)
