What is your call to action? How will you live a life of faith?
During the summer months, we’re featuring a post called “I Will.” What’s one thing you can do to make the world a better place?
I Will…Learn to Listen.
Living in the moment starts with learning to listen. A lot of conversations today have turned into a variety of sound bites, each person taking their turn talking, but not really hearing or listening to what the other person is saying.
Listening takes concentration and will power. You have to resist the idea of trying to think of the next thing to say or to add on to a conversation. You have to be quiet, both in mind and words.
While this is important when talking to others, this is also important when talking to God.
Are you truly listening to what God is telling you? Are you listening to what he’s asking of you?
When we learn to listen, we find that we begin to truly appreciate the people in our lives and the world around us.
