Sometimes They Just Want Someone To Listen

Proverbs 18:13 (NIV)“To answer before listening — that is folly and shame.”

Did you ever answer someone’s problem only to discover you misunderstood the problem?

Perhaps you took longer to give the answer than was the description of the problem?

I discover this anew every day—sometimes several times a day:

Sometimes the answering lies in just the listening.
