      Celebrating that grace is sufficient to take the person from wherever they are and move them towards the vision God has for them. It is like being in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in them.

      To listen without judgement, knowing that God’s in control of all happenings and we all need His mercy and grace though we may not understand.

      Embrace the reality that the person is made in the image of God, no matter how ugly his/her life can be. He/she is not beyond redemption. We listen to his journey reality with a vision of Christ in him, and that will help ‘eliminate’ our judgmental spirit and our fleshy desires/responses.

      We should listen with the aroma of grace that attracted the person to trust us with their story. Not shocked or disgusted, not with disappointment or disdain. Just listen for the whisper of the Holy Spirits leading.

      We must sit with people and listen. We must suffer with them and have empathy. In childbirth, a woman labors even in pain. She endures the pain because she knows the outcome will be joy. We must have the same spirit as we listen.

      We should listen knowing our hearts are self-deceptive and deal with our own interior world.
