It may surprise some of you, but, I don’t listen to every one who wants to tell me how to live life. You shouldn’t either. I filter through all the information I receive each day and only use what comes from certain sources. You need to filter the information you receive also. God’s puts certain people in our path to help encourage, instruct, and enjoy living life. We need to find those people and stop listening to every one who speaks. God tells us there are three people you should listen to. (1 Thessalonians 2:8 So we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.) I listen to those who love and truly care about me, my family, and my future. I listen to those who love me and will speak the TRUTH to me whether or not I want to hear it. I also listen to those who believe the best for me. I listen to those people who are constantly FOR me. Those who want me to be the best I can be. I listen to those who can take me from defeat to believing I can conquer the world. The other person I believe in besides the one who loves me and the one who believes in me, is the one who knows more than I do. I listen to one who is able to impart more into me than I already know. It does me no good to hang around those where I am top of the chart. I need those who are able to share life’s wisdom with me that I haven’t faced yet. I don’t know it all and never will, but, I always want to be in the learning stage. Be care who you allow to impart into your life. It’s important who has your ear. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
