Listening to Reply

I do not like the sentiment in this image because I am always listening to reply. I am always wanting to debate with my teammates. I am so insecure about my views that I need to reinforce them by constantly speaking about them.

In contrast, I so want to be a man that listens. I want to be a person who can learn from the life lessons that others can teach me. I want to be one who listens not only with my ears but with my heart. Even to folks that I disagree with.

I pray that we all may have ears to really hear - and listen to understand!


  1. I like the thought of listening both with my ears and with my heart. I think that makes us fully engaged.
    That's a great way to be.
