I love to listen to those who agree with me;
I hate those who are oppositional. Oh, wait . . .
I need to listen to those who are oppositional so I can hone my arguments—
enough to win the debate. Oh, wait . . .
Winning is not all I am called to as a believer
how do I hold to a position and defend a position without being arrogant,
without appearing holier than thou,
with being open to learning a new point of view?
I love to be right.
I hate to be wrong.
how will I ever grow and know unless I listen.
Oh, wait . . .
