Everyone longs to be understood. Everyone wants someone to listen intently, to hear the full intent of their heart. Consider the people in your world. Who is clamoring to be heard? What do you think they want you to really know about them? “He who answers before listening—that is his folly and his shame” (Proverbs 18:13). Who in your world needs to be more completely listened to? Attention, it has been said, is the height of love
