Listen and Learn
I find often that people, when they're trying to speak to someone else about Jesus, don't take the time to listen.

We need to grow in learning how to listen. Slow down, listen to the deep longings of the heart, listen for the disappointments in their past, listen for the desires they're trying to meet somewhere else.
