Take Time to Listen

Welcome back to the Encouragement challenge. Today, we are going to talk about taking time to listen. Listening is a key to encouraging someone. We must know what they are feeling about themselves and their situation to give personalized encouragement. Some people just want someone to listen when they are feeling sad; while others may need prayer. Today, take time to truly listen to someone and offer them encouragement.

James 1:9 — “Be quick to hear, slow to speak.”

James 1:19 — “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger”

Remember to be a blessing to others,
~M
