“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”
- Ephesians 4:2
With all the ish that's happening around the world I think we've been clamoring for a sense of peace. The greatest advice I have ever gotten and attempt to walk out every day is "seek to understand before being understood." When we already have a response to someone who is speaking we are not truly listening.
Are you willing to set aside your agenda for a moment? Are you willing to let go of being heard in order that another can be vulnerable? Are you ok that you may not get a chance to speak your peace? It's not a matter of being passive.
