Listening seems to be a lost art in this age of self promotion. Growing up I learned how to listen to people. It was always amazing at what I heard. People will talk about anything. If you just listen and hear what they are saying. They will tell you their life history. Usually, with in 10 minutes, people will let you know you they are. As a Christian, it’s very important for us to listen. We don’t have to speak words if we are living the life of Jesus. People will see and begin to ask questions. I find that the people who strongly object to the gospel, are the ones closest to becoming Christians. That is why the bible says, we are to be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. If we are truly died in Christ, anything hurtful that people say will just roll off our back. And we can smile and bless them. People want to know that what we believe is true. And they will test it, to make sure. So, we will be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. (James 1:18-19).
