The best listener

Perhaps the steepest challenge any of us face is being able to look at the world from someone else's point of view. So when I meet people who have beliefs I consider inane or reprehensible, my first instinct is to judge, condemn, and reject them, and then to explain exactly how they are wrong because I am sure if they only use a little common sense they will see the world my way. Over the past years of writing my book, I learned that the world is richer and more interesting if I begin by asking honest, positive questions, and then listen intently so I can learn from others. The best listener I know of was a guy named Jesus.
