I loved this graphic by Amy Carroll that addresses listening.
We often mistake the fact that if we listen to others, that means we are agreeing with them. Is that true? Absolutely not!
We can listen to others, show them respect, and even ponder their words without agreeing with them.
When we listen to others, we are giving them our attention.
"The first act of love is always the giving of attention" Dallas Willard
Who can you show love to today by listening to them?
