Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Listening is a wonderful gift we can choose to open each day.

Intently listening to each person who crosses our path is a most difficult assignment. But only by listening do we gather our daily lessons and significant messages from our Higher Power. When it’s hard to listen because we don’t like what someone is saying, we have to consider why. Evaluating our own perceptions and letting go of others’ opinions are important lessons.

We all play key roles in each other’s lives. It’s not coincidental that we share this path at this time. The people we meet, work with, live with — all are necessary to our Divine journey. From this program we are gathering the tools that will ease the steps of our journey. Listening is a significant tool. Let’s be glad for every opportunity to strengthen our listening skills.

My mind may wander when I talk with a friend today, but with God’s help, I’ll remember that I need to hear what is said.
