Plant a Seed of Attention

Every human nurtures a strong desire to be heard and understood. We were all designed with a burning desire to express our feelings, and when we meet someone who cares enough to listen for understanding, we feel valued and satisfied.

While listening remains your pathway into the mind of another, it is a strong proof of your caring. Whoever you really care about, you will give him or her full attention. The evidence of interest is the investment of time.

One of the greatest seeds you will ever plant in the heart of anyone is the seed of recognition. Can you show to others, through listening, that you recognise their needs to be heard and affirmed?

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” In other words, unless your heart of caring is found, your mind of knowledge remains unwanted. Recognising the feelings and the viewpoints of others are seeds for influence. When people know that you genuinely care about them, they open up their heart to your influence.

Favour is always in your caring. Great rewards are hidden in your kindness. Your fulfilment in life will be determined by your reactions to the needs of others. Sow a seed of quality attention to someone today and you will begin to attract divine favour into your future.

 “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honour one another above yourselves.” Romans 12:10
