Do not seek to be merciful… Never Listen to anyone

Reflections on the Year of Mercy (6)

Do not seek to be merciful… Never Listen to anyone 

I am told that Article 12 of the UN Convention on Child Rights speaks of their right to be heard. But I have the “Grace of State” and God inspires me to do what is best. Why should I listen to their views and their feelings? Only the weak and the servants listen. Even the Bible says so. Servant of Yahweh has the ears open to listen like a disciple.

During this year of mercy I make a conscious effort not to listen to people, much less understand them.

Statutory Warning: If you listen, you will grow in understanding.
