I have been studying about wisdom this week in the book of Proverbs. This afternoon I had to really pull on what I learned about being quick to listen, willing to understand and slow to speak and more so I had to pray about how I would respond as I held meetings to address some issues with a few staff members.
The meeting started off tense and I was praying about how to clearly address the issues and not just confront them but more importantly how to listen and not just respond thus putting into practice what I read earlier that day. Happy to report that within 5 mins of the meeting it became more of a brainstorming session to address some of the issues we identified and ultimately ended as a sort of team rally.
Not an easy day, but it was a great day.
