Attentiveness

V__A6CFWeek 2, Semester 2, Ellie graciously led us through devotion on the word “attentiveness” from our 30 Character Qualities. She defined attentiveness as the action of paying close attention to something. Then, she led us to compare “orderliness” our word from last week (which came up quite a lot today) with our word from today “attentiveness.”  When talking about circumstances surrounding these two words, Ellie asked the question, “When are you most attentive?” Some answered, “When authority is speaking, when something is interesting, when we enjoy something, when playing video games, when someone is preaching the Word of God.”  To conclude, Ellie led us to talk about Nehemiah 1:6,11 which says, “…please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open to hear the prayer of Your servant which I am praying before You, day and night, on behalf of Your servants, the [a]sons (descendants) of Israel (Jacob), confessing the sins of the sons of Israel which we have committed against You; I and my father’s house have sinned…  We prayed that God would open our eyes to hear from Him and He answered our prayer all day long by making us attentive to his revelation in our Challenge B studies.
