Why Listening is Important

A Production of the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network.

Sharing is caring!

In the Beginning…

In the very first chapter of Genesis, it tells us that “God said” and the earth was formed. There was listening.

How to listen

When listening to another person, it is important that we:

  • listen with the intention to understand and respond
  • let go of our own experiences and the need to talk about them
  • let go of judgment

When we listen, we give the other person a true gift of self.


At least one person must be listening for communication to take place.

Listening Day

May 16 is National Listening Day. There is a lovely poem, “Today I Will Listen,” by Marva Shand McIntosh.

This week, focus on listening to others.

And, if you can, leave a review of this podcast wherever you listen and subscribe to the Live Not Lukewarm newsletter. When you subscribe, you’ll receive a video series on How to Pray with Scripture!
