If we expect to have real and valuable relationships with people, we must listen to them. We must focus on what they are saying with a heart of understanding. How does this make them feel? What are they experiencing. Not what am I experiencing, but what are they experiencing? Listening is setting aside my life for a moment and leaning into the life of another.
How good are you at really listening? I believe this is something that all of us can work on. The world is a better place when we are hearing others.
It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
