Listen and ask

“Three days later they finally discovered him in the Temple, sitting among the religious teachers, listening to them and asking questions.

Luke 2:46 NLT


The wise listen and ask questions. Talking nonstop does not necessarily mean to know more or be teaching others.

To dominate a conversation is not a sign of intelligence, because when we talk we lose the opportunity to learn.

To ask wisely is like digging in the right place; there will always be a treasure to be discovered or something to teach others.
