Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters:
You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak,
and slow to get angry.
Star's Interpretation: Listening has become a lost skill. Notice that the friends who listen to us are the ones we tend to move toward. A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying. In the end you may disagree but at the very least you should know exactly what it is you're disagreeing with. When a friend receives us with open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our spirits grow and our world expands. Remember that it is the province of knowledge to speak but it is the privilege of wisdom to listen. The Lesson: Listen lest your tongue keep you deaf.
