Why is it that, most of the time, we rather speak than listen?
Why is it that we rather hear to reply, than listen to understand?
If we look at how we are created, at the features of our body enabling us to do these things – to talk and listen – we notice that we are actually created to listen more than we speak. Not only do we have two ears and one mouth, but our mouth is made to be closed whereas our ears are always open.
Feel free to double check at this point. 😉 Should our natural inclination therefore not be to listen more than we speak? To be quiet and learn from others rather than share what we have to say all the time?
There is so much wisdom in creation, we should make an effort to observe it more and learn from it. A wise person listens twice as much as they speak.
Keep in mind: Listening is learning. Learning is growth. And growth is the evidence of life.
