Listening is a Gift of Give & Take – WOMEN in RECOVERY

It’s easy to get busy in life trying to do everything at once. You can listen and work at the same time but sometimes multi-tasking isn’t the best use of our time.

We need to take time to deposit value in their hearts. We need to support one another, and listening is an amazing way of doing just that.

As you go about your day, your Higher Power reminds you to give people the gift of listening. It seems like such a little thing, but those little deposits will eventually make a big difference.

When you make deposits in people, you are making Deposits in Eternity, and that is what pleases the Heart of God.

Are You a Good Listener?”
