Listen More – Proverbs from the 2012 Intensive – Volume XII
lis·ten/ˈlisən/ v. give one’s attention to; hear
Talk less, listen more.
Why is it so important to make your point?
Why is it so important to be right?
Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction;
pay attention, gain understanding.
Listen, my son, accept what I say,
and the years of your life will be many.
I guide you in the way of wisdom
and lead you along straight paths.
When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;
when you run, you will not stumble.
Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
guard it well, for it is your life.
