When we don’t see things from the other person’s point of view, we either are being stubborn and wanting our way, or we truly don’t see their view.
Most often, we don’t know how, or we don’t want to love someone from the other side. Meaning, we don’t want to see things from the other persons point of view. If we don’t want to change our view, we will not learn to grow, nor to allow God to nurture us to help nurture others.
Learning to love from the other side, changes the direction of a conversation, and most of all, a relationship.
Be quick to listen, and slow to speak.
John 15:12 (KJV) – this is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Romans 12:10 (KJV) – be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.
James 1:19 (KJV) – wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.
