Matthew 18:15b. If He Listens 18 Jul 2023

Mat 18:15b If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.

Excerpt from THE NEW JERUSALEM BIBLE, copyright (c) 1985 by Darton, Longman & Todd, Ltd. and Doubleday, a division of Penguin Random House, Inc. Reprinted by Permission.

It sounds simple: 'If he listens to you.' I can listen to my brother and still ignore him. The real listening takes a real response.

It is about a brother who has done something wrong. People having done something wrong are not great listeners. They may feel guilty and ashamed. Therefore when talking to such a brother, he needs patience and kindness.


Jesus, teach me how to listen.

If He Listens
