Love Is A Good Listener
A true servant of God, who IS love, isn't necessarily a good preacher of the written word or goes around reciting scriptures like a parrot.
They hear the soft, gentle voice of His LIVING word and are not interested in THEIR voice being heard, but relaying the words they hear from the one, true Great Omniscient Deity of absolute, true love, who speaks from His heart, to the heart, in a way the heart understands.
They might not understand what He's giving them to say themselves, but the word He gives you to say is not for yourself. It's a word for those who are ready, willing and able to hear what you have to say, and it's a word that speaks to their heart, from His.
Many want to be great preachers of "the word", but people don't respond too well to someone who only recites scriptures and tries to tell them what it means. It usually falls on deaf ears.
When you truly hear the voice of the one, true God of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love and your every thought, word and deed is governed and dictated by His love, then you think, talk and walk like a true saint, a perfect gentleman or gentlewoman of HIS true love.
"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them"Hebrews 10:16
Virtue of the Week
Gentleness is moving wisely, touching softly, holding carefully, speaking quietly and thinking kindly. When you feel mad or hurt, use your self-control. Instead of harming someone, talk things out peacefully. You are making the world a more civil, gentler place.
But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness (virtuousness), godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.1 Timothy 6:11
