Desiring to encourage, because He encourages me!
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
I write what I need to hear,
What I need to learn.
What I am being reminded of.
What I need to put into practice.
These Biblical truths: be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath
Are what I need to work on.
How easy it is for me to be forming my next sentence
While I should be listening intently on what is being spoken to me.
How often I become frustrated and upset
Because I'm focusing on what I want to say
Instead of hearing the other's heart.
Lord, help me to do what your word instructs.
Help me to be a good listener. When it's time to give an
answer, may it be seasoned with grace and reflect your heart of love.
May I be a blessing as you help me to listen to hearts and not demand to be heard.
Because of Jesus,
Linking up today here:
I'd love to hear from you!
