The trouble with oral cultures and oral societies of which I am part of, is that we are taught to speak and do not learn sufficiently to listen because we place so much value on the spoken each man comes with his goatskin bag of wisdom and doesn’t have enough space to take from the other’s goat skin bag of wisdom..certainly our goat-skinbags and tobacco pouches are too small to hold God’s wisdom ….is that why we never care to take time out to listen to God?  There is always time to listen…listening can happen any time…listening helps you grow..not listening makes you run in the wrong direction and then make mistakes.
