Too Much Talk...Not Enough Listening

The more I talk, the more I realize how far I am from showing your true love and grace to the world! Oh that I would be less opinionated about things and more passioned about You. Oh that I would focus less on the differences I see in others than the difference You can make in me! Give me a generous heart to love others as You love me. Help me think before I speak, and only speak in gentleness and humility!
A wise old owl, sat in an oak...
The more he saw, the less he spoke...
The less he spoke, the more he heard...
Why can't I be like that wise old bird?

I pray that today and this week, I will speak less, so that I can hear God's spirit leading me!
