listening

learning to listen with our eyes!

Probably the most important part of the writing equation is listening. Not just listening to people, but listening to life as it happens all around me; listening and paying attention; reading between the lines; just having my eyes open enough to let the light in.

What is more important to you – being “right” or the love of Jesus?

The critical questions, then, are pretty-much, “Do I accept the saving grace of Jesus?” and, “Am I going to invite Jesus to be my companion and guide along the way?” Beyond that, the perceived need for consensus has more to do with our own pride, our own insecurity, our own limited perspective, our own desire to supplement God’s grace with (always a little more of) our own law.
