Forgetting Ourselves March7th - Our Daily Bread

When I’m listening to a friend, I need to remind myself to focus on him, not to begin wondering how I look, what he thinks of me, what I should say next. Let’s put others first by listening in rapt attention, concentrating on the one in front of us, forgetting ourselves.
Read: Philippians 2:1-4
Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak. —James 1:19
Bible in a year: Deuteronomy 3-4; Mark 10:32-52
When we hold our tongues and listen,
We communicate our care;
For an open ear speaks volumes
To a heart that’s in despair. —Sper
Listening may be the most loving thing you do today.
