Job 18:2 How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? Mark, and afterwards we will speak.
Don’t you love it when they are arguing and can’t wait to say something.
If you and I want to help someone we need to learn to listen before we speak. It can’t be just waiting till the other person stops speaking to say our piece. We must hear them. We must respond to what they are saying.
To help someone we must first listen to them. That is more important than speaking often.
