Daily Digest #256

Be doers of the Word. —James 1:22

Listening can be a difficult thing to do for many of us. We usually believe what we already know, or that we know better, and we block anything that may affect our stance. But the thing is, it's not always about us. Why do we try to prove ourselves all the time, that our choices are better? Others who want to be heard express themselves, just as how we want to express ourselves. We may be sometimes stronger at this aspect, but it doesn't make us the official talkers :D We need to listen sometimes. There are so many things to learn, and we may just hear them from those we thought were weak or flawed or very much different from ourselves. It is when we truly listen that God speaks to us -- through prayer, circumstance or other people.

For this, let us pray. May we humble ourselves and learn to listen. May we accept that we do not know everything, and admit that a Higher Power does. May we choose love and kindness over righteousness. May we listen to understand, then speak with love. Enjoy the rest of the week! Pray always.
