thought for today

Respect for the people’s word need not mean approval for whatever they say. Any criticism becomes constructive when based on a fundamental attitude of respect and listening.

This inspired me to write a post at my church blog Robert. I already got one interesting comment there, from a non-listening person. I am praying for them and trying to find my own listening heart.
