Listening

Sometimes we just need to sit and listen to people.

I spoke to one of my friend in the pub last night and I knew they weren’t in a good place. We hadn’t spoken for a while and a lot of water had passed under the bridge.

I like to talk, share stories and say my bit, but for once I just listened. My opinion wasn’t needed. An open heart and open ear was needed.

Franciscan theology puts forth that, “Love precedes all True Knowledge”. If I really want to know what’s going on with my friend, then I need to sit, listen and love them exactly how they are and where they are at in that moment.

Who do you need to listen to more?
