Hearing is not agreeing

In recent days I have come across people who have said they or others they know are in situations in which they were not heard or were not listened to. Someone postulated to me that perhaps it wasn't that they were not listened to or not heard but merely that whom they were speaking with did not agree. How many times has this happened to me? It is possible that many times in the past when I thought someone was not listening to what I had to say, simply did not agree with me. Hearing is not agreeing. Someone can listen to me and hear what I have to say without agreeing. I must strive in the future to make sure that I know where someone is not hearing me or just disagreeing with me. Each one has different conotations and require different responses in turn.

Title of Blog

I thought that I would try this blogging thing. It seems to be something that many people enjoy. A way to air their thoughts. As I was faced with the choice to give the blog a name I caused me to think. What would people's impression be when they came across these musings. For some reason Convict of Christ came. At first I was thinking more along the lines of Convict for Christ, but thought that might be confusing, leading some people to think that I was or had been in jail. Neither of which is true. Not that I have anything against those who are. Everyone makes mistakes. May God bless you and hopefully if you do not know Jesus Christ in a personal relationship, something that I say will help you to.
