Reading: Psalm 116: 1-4, 12-19
Read the first verses again with me. "I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my supplications. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live."
The psalmist says he loves the Lord because God listened to his cries. This struck me as I read this psalm because you don't often hear someone say, "I love you because you are a good listener!" I'm sure you know people in your lives who listen well but have you ever thought that is the only reason you love them?
This Sunday, we again hear the story of the disciples who were walking along the road to Emmaus. Jesus is there with them. And what does he do? Listen!
In the coming days, try harder to listen more to those you love. Maybe they, too, will grow in their love for you because you are actively listening to their voice and supplications! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
