Listening to the Question


Did you ever notice that people weren’t afraid to ask Jesus questions. Both his friends and enemies felt free to ask. Even though people sometimes didn’t much like the answers they were willing to ask because Jesus was always ready to listen.

In nursing home ministry I am learning that the real ministry of change only happens when people begin to ask questions. For that to happen my prayers as of late are that God will help me to slow down and listen more. Are we ready to hear uncomfortable questions? When we listen to the question then God will be able to give people His answers through us. Have a blessed week!

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
Matthew 18:1 NIV

    God is faithful and gives us strength to hear and act.

    Be blessed.
