Listening is a magnetic and creative force. The people who listen to us are the ones we move toward , the ones who creates us, make us expand. It is easier for us to speak than it is for us to listen, though.

We should listen to others with affection as they are showing their souls to us. They are showing their true selves.

While we should be good listeners of others, we should listen most to God when He speaks to us. He is telling telling us His will for us, His dreams for us, His affection for us. He is showing who us who He really is and who He wants us to be, if we would only listen! He speaks to us in so many ways - through that quiet voice we hear, through events in our lives, through other people. We just need to listen and be aware of His presence and His word.

Lord, help us to move closer to You and to truly listen to You. Help us to hear what You say and what You want for our lives. It is so much easier to listen to ourselves and what we want, but help us to listen to You and heed Your will.

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. Deuteronomy 30:19-20
