Rev. Steve DeNeff - Proverbs 1:20-31;2:1-8. "Everyone is talking, but who is really listening? Proverbs says that Wisdom is always calling out, yet who is seeking it? Wisdom falls like rain on the continental divide, and from there it flows toward those who listen and away from those who don’t. Most people would rather give advice than take it. Most, who are good at assessing others, are not as good at being assessed yet those who welcome criticism are the ones who find Wisdom. Listening well, and responding well to criticism, gets harder and harder the older and more educated we become. This sermon will show how our capacity to listen affects every relationship, every venture, every opportunity and teach us how to listen more effectively."
