LEARNING TO LISTEN


The first service one owes to others in the fellowship consists in listening to them.  Just as love of God begins in listening to His Word, so the beginning of love for [our brothers and sisters] is learning to listen to them.  It is God's love for us that He not only gives us His Word but lends us His ear.  So it is His work that we do for [others] when we learn to listen to [them].

-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) in Life Together
