Listening And Asking

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Luke 2:46
After three days, they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.


This is the story of Jesus at the age of twelve. His mom and dad had brought him along with many people from their village in Nazareth to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. After it was over, they traveled back, but Mary Jesus’ mom couldn’t find him. So she and Joseph went back to Jerusalem to look for Jesus. When they found him, he was in the temple courts, “Listening And Asking,” questions to the teachers of the law.


No one ever elevates in life without “Listening And Asking,” questions to people who know more than they do. Jesus was God, but as a human, he learned obedience the Bible says through the things which he suffered. (Heb. 5:8) Part of that suffering must have been to listen to and ask questions of people that he was infinitely smarter than. Can you imagine asking a question you already knew the answer to someone that was so far out of your sphere of intelligence that you had to endure the process? Yet, the Bible says he was sitting “Listening And Asking,” questions of such people. Jesus was establishing a pattern not only for learning but also for staying humble through the process, even though we may think we know more than our older teachers. Our mission today again should be to go out into the marketplace, “Listening And Asking,” questions to everyone we meet.


Dear Jesus,

I’m going to say it one time this AM, and here it is. I think I know why you gave us two ears and just one mouth. It’s because you wanted us to say it once so we wouldn’t oversell what we’re pushing at the time. And second, you wanted us to listen twice as much as we talk. But thirdly, there’s still the practice of asking questions that will hone our outcomes. Help me to be good at all three. Amen
