One of the greatest gifts we can give to another person is the gift of listening. When we honestly and sincerely listen to others, we affirm them and help them feel valued. Even when we don’t share the same opinion or perspective on life, we can still ask good questions and listen well to the other person’s point of view. This Christmas, let’s take a genuine interest in the people in our path and find out what is important to them.
James 1:19, “ Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.”
