Christian living, 31 day writing challenge, listen

Many times in the Scriptures we are commanded to listen. God wants us to listen for His voice, listen to His commands, and listen to instruction. His word also tells us that He listens to us. Perhaps you have been listening well, and learning from Him, but maybe, you have only been listening with one ear, more intent on what you want to say to God than what you want to hear of His voice.

Do not be discouraged by your past, but be encouraged by God's willingness to speak. If you are like me, and you have failed to listen well because you were too busy trying to do too many things at once, then try again. Make time to listen to His voice. Make time to read God's Word and meditate on what the Holy Spirit is showing you is most important in the passage for right now in your life.

Then take that skill of listening well and use it to bless others around you. Give your spouse, your children, even your boss your full attention as they speak. Listen to their words, and then determine, with God's help, to respond well.

God gave us two ears and only one mouth. It is time to listen.
