Love Listens

Few of us listen patiently. The way we communicate to our spouse reflects the condition of our heart. If we are angry because of unmet expectations then we tend to respond harshly. A lot of times in a conversation we listen to respond and not to understand. This should be our daily challenge. Try to demonstrate patience with your spouse by not saying anything negative to them, but really try to understand what they are trying to communicate to you. It is better to hold your tongue than to say something you will regret. The bible says in James 1:19, “Understand this: everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger”. If you are finding yourself not being able to hold in your anger give us a call!

One response on “LOVE LISTENS

  1. A simple, yet effective reminder for all of us in any relationship, whether it be with our spouse, children, co-workers, etc. I remember someone telling me that there is a reason why we have two ears and one mouth. We should listen more and do less talking (especially if it is hostile). When we listen more, we understand more. Thanks Vernesa for this daily reminder!
