Listening – Part 2

I finished a somewhat longer article on listening, but I will wait to publish that tomorrow. This morning I wanted to lighten the mood a bit by sharing a poem I wrote a few years ago, titled Ears. I hope you enjoy and that you will join me on the journey of learning to listen.


Only ears can hear
That's just the way God made us
If ears were eyes or nose
They'd certainly betray us

But when God fashioned ears
Those humble awkward things
That flop about and wiggle
On little inner springs

He made a way to tell us
How much we'd been forgiven
And then He set and tuned them
To hear His words from Heaven

Yes only ears can hear
That's just the way God made them
Humble listening gifts
Let's certainly obey them!

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger
