A few days ago we started the second 10-day segment of our 40-day journey together: a pathway to increased attentiveness.
Narrowing our focus in order to selectively focus in on Jesus is not easy to do. We've taken some time to refresh our hearts, to remind ourselves of Jesus' presence, and to receive His grace and truth. Now we're going to ask Him to help us listen and pay attention to His voice.
Rest, Rest. Rest in God's love. The only work you are required to do is to give your most intense attention to His still, small voice within." - Madame Jeanne Guyon
Proverbs 22:17-21: Pay attention and turn your ear to the sayings of the wise; apply your heart to what I teach, for it is pleasing when you keep them in your heart and have all of them ready on your lips. So that your trust may be in the LORD, I teach you today, even you. Have I not written thirty sayings for you, sayings of counsel and knowledge, teaching you to be honest and to speak the truth, so that you bring back truthful reports to those you serve.
To pay attention takes effort and can be exhausting. This passage in Proverbs reminds us of the great benefit of cupping our ear to listen. How have you seen the benefits in this passage realized in your life?
