Becoming Like God: The Great Listener

Excellent article to help us become like God… by listening like him. The foremost communication skill? Listening.  A fruit of the Spirit is …listening.

The author’s points:

1. God listens to God.

2. God listens to us.- Think about all the prayers God listens to!

3. We Should Listening to Others with the Ears of God.

Here Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s rich insights remain unsurpassed: “The first service that one owes to others in the fellowship consists in listening to them. . . . It is God’s love for us that he not only gives us His Word but also lends us His ear. . . . But Christians have forgotten that the ministry of listening has been committed to them by Him who is Himself the great listener and whose work they should share. We should listen with the ears of God that we may speak the Word of God” (Life Together, chapter 4).

Good article. HT Challies
