Listening Breeds Acceptance by Robert Ricciardelli
The beauty of listening is that, those who are listened to feel accepted, valued, and can believe in themselves even more. They discover more fully how uniquely and wonderfully God has made them to be. Listening is a form of godliness by which you invite strangers to become friends. By honoring the persons verbal expression, the friend feels loved, and in the place of safety will feel accepted, even when the words are few and silence comes.
