It’s funny how things get lost in translation. Whether it’s re-interpreted around the gossip circle or someone misinterprets the meaning of the word “hearing”, this kind of miscommunication happens frequently. What is the problem? We hear, but we don’t listen. Listening involves us giving our attention to what we hear.
Our biggest problem is that we are so busy coming up with what we are going to say that we fail to listen. We do not need to always respond verbally. Many conflicts could be avoided if we just took time to really listen and understand someone’s point of view. So the next time someone shares his or her heart with you, be swift to hear and slow to speak. The result could spare Robert from major indictment😂.
