Maybe it is just me, but many times I am quick to speak and slow to listen. I just want to make sure I get my point across, is what I keep telling myself. I love the first quote. We can only speak about what we know, but we can learn and become more wise, when we listen. Listening to our children, spouse, friends, family members, co-workers, pastor, and most importantly to God, whether that be through His Word, through preaching, sitting quietly in His presence. We gain so much understanding when we listen. I have noticed that people appreciate being listened to. So many people are hurting and do not know where to turn. When we offer to really hear what they are saying and acknowledge what they are feeling, whether we agree with them or not, it is a powerful thing. Today I am going to try and do more listening, less speaking and see what I learn.
