To listen is to love. To reserve judgment is to exemplify the person of Christ. Out of the concern in the heart, every mouth speaks. If you could take an unselfish moment to listen, then your answer will unfold.
The transformative knowledge of Christ is more than a head knowledge, that can be transmitted and received. It is also a heart knowledge, that gestates and incubates a living, breathing faith.
MY Word is sperm and your heart is the egg. As a seed fertilizes an egg, life is spontaneous and morphs the existence of both sperm & egg. The birth of a new hope, a new possibility and a fresh start is now a real and a tangible thing.
A listening ear leads to concern, that concern is a demonstration of love. A love that is first felt and then received. Love received within a heart fertilizes, a fertilized heart is rejuvenated and produces life. Listening leads to Love, Love leads to Life.
And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”
