Welcome to Hope Talk
I need to learn how to see in the future. All too often I get into a situation and am not thinking about how this will continue and even end, which would really change much of the communication during situation. Now I know that Jesus was able to read the person’s mind of whom he was talking, which would be a great gift and help in communication. He knew what was in man. (John 2:25) Well that depends on who you are talking to… could be a mess also. One of the things that the Lord is teaching me is to think through the situation before it occurs so that you have some direction and steering to it. I noticed this week that Jesus would probe the words of an individual to which He was speaking much more than giving facts or information. He wanted to know the heart of the person before He answered or didn’t answer. All too often I answer before I know how I should answer. Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath. (James 1:19) So I give you some advice, remember to be swift to hear and you will be slow to speak. Blessings.
