This week we’re going to look at some very simple ways you can be less selfish.
So many people have lost the simple act of listening. We hear people, of course. We’re great at “talking” with people but maybe not so much at listening to them. We’re looking for a place to plug our own hearts, interests and struggles and less about what they might be going through. We miss what they want to share and we miss what they might be trying to hide.
Have you taken time to truly listen to the people around you? Do you listen to your spouse? Do you listen to your children or your boss? Are you so busy focused on what you have to say that you miss what they need to say to you?
Proverbs 18:13 – If you’re ready to give an answer before the other person has finished speaking, it’s only going to end in your foolishness and shame.
