BORROWED DIRECTIONS

June 10th, 2018

Someone calls us up on the phone and asks for directions.

No.

 

We ask questions.

What landmarks do you see?

 

How did you get there?

 

What did you see on your way to this place?

 

Can you give me more details? 

 

 

 

 

 

Only by asking the right questions can we understand where someone is.  Only when we truly understand where someone is can we than even start to be helpful by giving some directions that might lead to a better place.

 

 

 

How often do we dish out advice before truly understanding where someone is?
