Two more principles that are liberating to our lives 1. The value of being a good listener 2. Purposed favor

The Value of Being A Good Listener James 1:19 1. Quick to LISTEN 2. Slow to SPEAK 3. Slow to become ANGRY

Listening involves more than your ears Intent - Attention - Not Distracted

While you are listening are you…

1. Thinking about what you are going to say when they stop talking?

2. Filtering the other person’s remarks through your own opinion and needs?

3. Easily distracted by outside noise?

4. Trying to second guess?

5. Trying to finish their sentence?

6. Putting words in their mouth?

Listen - seeking to understand and being objective 

Listening is an Art - Develop It - Perfect It
