Prayer to be more attentive

One of the biggest mistakes we can make is thinking the same help or approach works for everyone. To be truly Christ-like, we have to pay close attention to the signals people send us. Some need a kind word or a hug. Or maybe they need you to wait for them. Others need limits – and some need to repent. Don’t beat them over the head with a Bible though.

Jesus listened and was keenly aware of the needs of others. He knew when it was time to share a meal – and when it was time to deliver the Word. But in all things, the Spirit guided him and was with him.

Be like Jesus. Search the heart. Be filled with the Spirit. Then be God’s instrument that helps bring love and everlasting life to others.

The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying:

“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
    I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”

Jeremiah 31:3

Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. …To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.

1 Corinthians 9:19, 22, 23
