Oh Hush

Once again, I have experienced the importance of putting myself on the back-burner and listening to someone who just needs an ear.  Not only have I personally felt the benefit of someone taking the time to let me talk their ear off, but over the past few years I have learned that God can use me to relieve some of the emotional turmoil that those around me are experiencing.
God wired us to be relational--and it can mean a whole lot for someone to just pay attention to us once in a while.  To set aside their own agenda and put someone else first.  

Is it really that hard to keep our mouths shut for half an hour?

Sorry about the lecture, but sometimes I'm surprised about how out of shape our ears can be while our mouths run marathons daily.
