To Learn is to listen

If you want to learn, you have to listen:

Listen to advice & accept discipline & at the end you will be counted among the wise-Proverbs 19:20

In a world of constant self expression, it makes one wonder if anyone is truly listening any more?

To pay attention to someone is a sign of respect and to show genuine interest is a sign of intelligence.

It shows that you are not merely waiting for them to stop talking so you can respond but that your response will be based on the impact of their words.

To learn is to submit. To submit your mind to be open for change, improvement, and growth.

Keep learning and be humble enough and gentle in your discussions so you don’t hamper another’s opportunity to learn.
