Going forward, determine to ask more questions and give fewer answers.
Even Jesus, who was the wisest person to ever grace this planet had the habit of answering someone’s question with a question.
Remember, most people are not looking for an answer; most of the time (deep down) they already know the answer; what they are longing for is to be understood.
- The ONE THING for today: Don’t be Mr/Ms Answer-giver choose to be Mr/Ms Wisdom-seeker. Or put another way, seek to understand, not be understood.
2 making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;
Proverbs 2:2 (NRSV)
