"So then, to tell my story, here I stand....You hear me speak, but do you hear me feel?"
Gertrude Kolmar, Holocaust victim
Others need someone to hear them feel--REALLY hear. I so need to learn how to close my mouth and open my ears! Just having someone listen can often be a big help. I think that is why God gave us prayer. He listens and brings His Word to our mind. I learn this way. It is just like putting a jig saw puzzle together out loud.
Asking thoughtful and truly interested questions is another way to show you "feel". The Bible word for this is compassion. I love reading I Cor. 13--I pray for a Christlike love.
Just a little side note of appreciation to the people who have taken time to hear me feel. Thank you.
