A picture and a practice
Posted By: Halder, Jon On: 22 Aug 2014 09:01:50

God gave me 2 things today to think on and look at.

One is a picture of a child looking defiantly out from behind the robes of Jesus as described in Revelation.  The Jesus who is coming this time to conquer.  The look of the child is as if to say, "Ok world, here is my big brother to defend me."  At first I questioned this to God.  Am I really that child able to do that?  I am not feeling that I am successful at living righteously very often.  But I felt that He was saying, yes, see yourself as that child.

A little later on today, I was thinking on the scripture about being quick to listen and slow to speak.  I am pretty bad at doing that.  I am quick to want to jump in with my own thoughts as if they will disappear if I don't interrupt with them.  Perhaps many times I should let those thoughts disappear.  They keep me from listening.  So I think I need a new procedure.

  1. Listen to the other person
  2. Listen to God
  3. Obey God

Sounds pretty simple.  So here I go off on my day to try it out.
