Take Time To Truly Listen

Thought for Today: “Take Time To Truly Listen”

To understand what a person is saying, we must listen to what their spirit is saying.

Whatever a person’s intentions may be; the reality is what comes out of their mouths.

Whatever is in a person’s spirit is revealed in what they say. Jesus said, “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). In other words, as soon as the words are spoken, the spirit is revealed.

If a person is dealing with pride, then the spirit of pride will come out in their speech. If they are envious, then the spirit of jealousy will come out of their mouths. If a person is holding onto resentment and bitterness, then the spirit of unforgiveness is what will be heard. Whatever a person is dealing with, whatever they are holding within, it will come out in what they say.

If we want to make a difference in the lives of those who are around us, we must be careful to hear what is being said before we speak. The Apostle James said, “be quick to listen and slow to speak.” (James 1:19)

Therefore, let’s take the time to listen so we can understand the true nature of where people are coming from.
