Listen and Silent



 Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. James 1:19

So often you think you are listening but you’re really just waiting for our turn to talk. you’re not intentionally rude or self-absorbed – it’s only natural to want to engage, ask clarifying questions, or interject a personal observation. But some conversations are not two-way. Some conversations – if we are to fully engage – require our silence.

The next time you’re presented with the opportunity consider putting your listening hat on and leaving it there.
