God Blessed Morning Family!
To understand you is to Love you. Most of the time we do not take the time to understand each other, not because we know each other's position but because we know our own and if what you are saying does not match up to my understanding then I choose to not listen any further and at this point I become judgemental of you. To listen and attempt to get understanding of one another is to show not only respect and wisdom but also Love. It does not matter how the message is delivered for what matters is how we receive and perceive it. "Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." Proverbs 4:5-7 When we strive to understand one another we put our judgement aside, for it is through our ability to understand in which we allow our Love for one another to take center stage in our interaction with each other. If your understanding comes from Love then there can be no judgement nor distrust of our intentions for we all seek the same thing which is the unconditional Love of each other and most of all God. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
