Within my family God has given me many opportunities to learn how to listen. But there is a difference in listening to what people say and hearing what people say…
It reminds me of a quote from the movie “Fight Club.” The narrator pulls us in when he says, “When people think you’re dying, they really, really listen to you, instead of just… ” Marla finishes his thought giving us all something to think about. “…instead of just waiting for their turn to speak?”
What would it look like if we took the time to really hear what people are saying instead of just waiting for our turn to speak?
