listen (1)

Have you ever heard someone talking to you and then just a moment later wondered what they were saying or asked, “What am I supposed to do?”

It has been well said that God gave us one mouth and two ears because He wants us to listen twice as much as we speak. Well, that may not be the case but it is very important to listen.

Listening is not just hearing words or sounds. Listening is understanding. Everyone around us is trying to communicate, but often we are more concerned with what we are doing or with what we are going to say than listening to the actual words they are speaking.

Listening takes effort.

Listening takes focus.

Listening is important.

So, the next time mom or dad, or your husband or wife is talking to you – look at their face, hear their words, feel their emotions and really listen to what they are saying.

Listen not only with your ears, but with your heart.

Truly listening will change your home and change your life.
