Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 April 19

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: (James 1:19)

Today’s Morsel:  Did you hear what I said, or did you think you heard what I said?  One of the things about active listening is we must be able to repeat back the things that are said to us by the one speaking to us.  But I am afraid that as I get older, my hearing seems to be slipping a little bit.  And not only that, but there seems to be so many distractions around when some is talking to me.   I am now afraid that I am starting to miss some important facts and data being given to me.  My active listening may be declining.   Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).  There is no way we can follow Him if we do not listen to what He says to us.   James tells us to let every man be swift to hear.  I guess that in today’s world if we are going to do that, then we need to turn off our gadgets and pay more attention to what is being said.  If we hear what is being said, we are more likely to provide good advice and make wise decisions.

Sing:  When He calls me, I will answer, when He calls me, I will hear.  When He call me, I will answer, I’ll be somewhere listening for my name.  I’ll be somewhere listening, I’ll be somewhere listening, I’ll be somewhere listening for my name.  I’ll be somewhere listening, I’ll be somewhere listening, I’ll be somewhere listening for my name.

Thought For Today: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).

    This. This is exactly why I decided to start blogging. It can be very isolating being home with babies, even if you get out and do stuff each day. It is so nice to read about another woman going through it too!
