The Listening Exercise

James 1:19 Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. Last night we facilitated our second week of Love After Marriage. We practiced something called “The Listening Exercise” where one spouse says a few sentences about an issue they’re going through, and the other spouse tries their best to make their partner feel understood and “listened to.” It’s quite funny to watch couples (usually it’s the husband) hold back from trying to fix a problem. This video pretty much sums it up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4EDhdAHrOg If two become one flesh, and if we are to act as one body of believers, then the first step in loving each other is understanding each other. And how can one understand if he does not listen? Lord, thanks for giving us the listening exercise. It has helped our marriage so much, and yet there’s so much more room to grow. I pray that you will help me to be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. In your son’s name, Amen.
