Listening Closely
By: Rick Boxx
December 3, 2012

For our first night in Manhattan, Don, Greg and I ate dinner at a great Italian restaurant in Times Square. Their menu was unique in that one price fed 3-4 people!

We were so hungry that when a server walked by with an enticing filet mignon we were sold. We thought the server said $46 for the steak, but we were more focused on the filet than the answer.

When the bill came we learned that the filet was $75, and that the server had told us 46 ounces of meat, rather than $46.

Proverbs 18:13 teaches, “He who answers before listening— that is his folly and his shame.”

The steak was worth it, but part of listening requires gaining understanding. In our workplace, we need to understand before answering.
