'You can't fake listening. It shows.' Raquel Welch
Listening is quite hard. It can be tiring. I fear that I'm not terribly good at it. A lot of time has been spent meeting people this week and listening to them. To their hopes and fears. To their joy and pain. Have I listened well? Did I also listen to God's Word of love to them? Of encouragement? Of hope? Did they listen?
I talk too much and don't listen nearly enough. It's something that I need to get better at.
