The One Who Listens
Those of us who do most of the talking could learn some lessons from those who hear us. The great American diplomat, Henry Kissinger retained his German accent all his life, although his younger brother, Walter, lost his. When asked why this was so, Walter replied, “Because I am the Kissinger who listens.” Proverbs 10:19 – “When words abound, transgression is inevitable; but the one who restrains his words is wise.” As you speak for the Lord, have you retained the accent of your former life? Are His words having their effect on the way you speak, the way you live?
