Toddlers have the amazing skill of selective hearing. They can cause one to question whether they have heard you at all.

Listen, as defined by means not only hearing or giving attention with the ear but also “attending closely for the purpose of hearing with the intent to follow through or obey.”

But it isn’t a problem found solely among toddlers. People are no longer “listening” when others are speaking. Everyone talks over others. Listening is truly becoming a lost facet of communication.

In his book, 40-Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ron Klug shares this quote:

“Many people seek a sympathetic ear and do not find it among Christians, because these Christians are talking when they should be listening.” (from page 72)

Love for one another is very much on display as we truly listen to one another. But the issue of being a good listener goes further.
