Rabbit Ears



You remember the story of the tortoise and the hare. Bunny versus turtle. Quick versus slow. In what ways are you rabbit-like?


  • Quick to judge
  • Quick to speak
  • Quick with advice
  • Quick to listen

Quick to listen?

Listening is slow! There’s a lot of STOP in listening. STOP what you’re doing. STOP planning what you’re going to say next.

Listening seems all turtle, no bunny.

James 1:19 (NIV)
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.

Put on your rabbit ears.bless listening

  1. Shirlee, you nailed it! I appreciate your words.

  2. Depends on what they’re saying. There are people in my life who tell me how I will become weaker and more limited, and how bad things will get.

    I tune them out. Quickly.

      I hear you, Andrew. And I hope you hear a bit of love behind the words before you tune them out.
