Doesn’t it seem like everyone has an iPod these days?

Yes, it does…including you!

I do, and I think they’re wonderful. You know, 48 million of those have been sold and I think one of the things we like about them is we are in control of what we hear.

It’s amazing! We can screen things out except exactly what you want to choose to listen to.

Right! And I think sometimes we fall into that same desire in our relationship.

I’d love an iPod in our marriage sometimes. I don’t always want to hear what you have to say.

Put it on pause or lower the volume…I understand. It goes both ways. So friend, think about that in your own relationship. When you’re tempted to screen out what your spouse is trying to say to you, take off those preverbal headphones. Take a listen.
