Being Understood is a Luxury

February 29, 2008

My friend Robin over at Heart of Wisdom had an excellant post today & I wanted to share it with you. 

 Here is the first few paragraphs, you need to go to her site for the rest.  While you are there you will be blessed by her other writings.

Christians who are passionate for God can be unaware of the critical need for people to be understood. Many of our brothers and sisters in Christ have deep emotional roots that go ignored.

Jesus took the time to listen and understand. He looked below the surface to the heart.

People pay counselors thousands of dollars just to be heard in hopes of being understood. I believe the new explosion in blogging is a portrait of people needing to be heard, to be understood.

We all have a need to come to grips with the scars from our past, to be honest about our brokenness and become vulnerable and learn to grow through pain. We do this by being heard and being understood.
