12-Two Ears and One Mouth
James 1:19 My dear brothers and sisters, pay attention to what I say. Everyone should be quick to listen. But they should be slow to speak.
I remember when I first came to recovery my sponsor said to me ‘take the cotton wool out of your ears and put it in your mouth.”
The best advice I ever received. None of us ended up here, in recovery because we wanted to. None of us got up one day and said “it’s a nice day, the sun is shining I think I will go to recovery.” We ended up in recovery because God knew it is where we need to be.
My advice to everyone reading this today is listen to those who have been here longer than you. They know more because they have travelled the road longer and have more experience.
- How did you arrive in recovery?
- Are you willing to learn from others?
Prayer: Lord open my ears and my mind. Teach me to listen to and advice and apply it?
