In this article, author JoAnn James heightens our awareness on the reality of our  distraction filled world and how little listening takes place.  She goes on to make the direct link between listening and God’s Word by citing several relevant scripture verses:

“He who answers before listening — that is his folly and his shame.” ~ Proverbs 18:13.

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” ~ John 10:27

“Let the wise listen and add to their learning.” ~ Proverbs 1:5

“Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” — James 1:19

For me, this article emphasizes that listening is not something that we can boil down to a series of techniques.  There has to be a compelling desire to listen that comes from ‘why” we listen. ~ Rick
