Story about FDR greeting people in the White House with frustration because no one seemed to listen. He greeted many dignitaries with the phrase “I murdered my grandmother this morning” but no one noticed and gave rehearsed responses like “how lovely” and ” continue your great work”. Finally one of the guests actually heard his comment and responded “I am sure she had it coming”.
There are tons of classes at universities and colleges to teach language, speech, debate, and how to argue. But there is very little instruction and training on listening. Yet each one of us as HIMs need to cultivate the gift of listening to better lead and serve those in our homes, at work, and in our communities.
James 1:19-20 “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. ”
Most importantly we need to learn to listen to the Creator and Lord speaking to us…. encouragement to cultivate and work on your listening skills.
