We’re all pretty darned good at arguing as if we know we’re right. That’s easy. Listening though… That’s whole different thing. Listening at all is a challenge for most people. Forget about listening while thinking that maybe, just maybe we might be wrong. That’s really difficult. But that’s not the perspective being offered here.

Next time you find yourself in a debate, go ahead and feel free to argue as if you know you’re right. BUT… At the same time, try listening as if you know you’re wrong.

Think about it…

    Thank you. Spent Sunday evening engaged in coversation about religion with two of my sisters, brother-in-law, nephew, and niece. Like politics, positions are frequently firm.
