Listen . . .
Think On This . . .
What do you say when someone says something you don’t agree with or understand? My standard answer has become one word: “Interesting.”
The New Testament makes it clear that we are to have a genuine interest for the best in one another. A component of being other-centered is to realize each and every person has a specific and unique purpose.
Our value is often assessed by our power, possessions, position, and attractiveness rather than in our God-given “why” of living.
At the end of the day, our life is not about we have or do not have but rather our journey with God and one another.
The thing is . . . we encourage others to see and accept their value . . . by being genuinely interested in their life.
Intentionally be interested in others.
Listen to others with interest. Honor and bless those you connect with by being genuinely interested in them.
