Importance of Listening

Proverbs 18:13 

Listen before you answer. If you don’t, you are being stupid and insulting. 

 

At times when we are in conversation with someone, perhaps we may think we know what they 

are going to say and we want to interrupt, or we do interrupt, thinking it will save time and we 

have the answer. If we do that we are insensitive, impolite and discourteous to the other person. 

By listening to the other person complete their thought, we show respect as well as encouraging 

them by showing they are important enough to listen to.
