Listen

After finally finishing all of my big papers from my classes it's dawning on me just how important all of my studies are - I'm learning so much.

Namely, I've learned that the most important thing we can do to show Christ shining through us is to just stop and listen.

Our society has become one that if we don't agree with each other we just stop listening - we argue, we disagree, we fight, we stop talking, we move on from each other. We have created labels that allow us to judge quickly and separate ourselves from each other. That is not cool - we have let go of our egos, the need to be in control and start being nice to each other. Being all up in the faces of those we don't agree with is not going to teach them anything. Being quiet and actually listening will show Christ's goodness through us and will hopefully be a beacon to brighten someone's future.
