Did you know that Solomon used the word “listen” (or a variation of it) over 20 times in the book of Proverbs? That may not seem that impressive, but considering that Proverbs only has 31 chapters — that’s a high percentage.
Think of the implications.
What if we spent more time in our marriages listening rather than talking?
What if we turned off the television and listened to our children?
What if leaders listened to the people they lead?
What if employers held listening meetings with their employees?
