- When we listen, we encourage the other person to talk.
- Listening also helps us to understand the other person.
- Reasons many of us do not listen:
- We’re defensive.
- We assume we already know what they’re going to say.
- We’re thinking about what we’re going to say next.
- With observation listen not merely with our ears, but listen with our eyes.
- With concentration focus on what the other person is saying.
- With consideration think about the meaning behind the words without jumping to conclusions.
- With clarification think it through until we get it straight.
- Proverbs 10:19 “In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,
But he who restrains his lips is wise.”
- Proverbs 17:27 “He who has knowledge spares his words,
And a person of understanding is of a calm spirit.”
- Proverbs 21:23 “Whoever guards his mouth and tongue
Keeps his soul from troubles.”
- Ecclesiastes 5:3 “For a dream comes through much activity,
And a fool’s voice is known by his many words.”
- Destructive games we play:
- The judge we blame our mate.
- The professor we act superior.
- The psychologist we assume we understand everything about the other person.
- The historian we keep a record; we want every detail correct.
- The dictator we want to rule, sometimes by a show of force.
- The critic we compare our mate with other people.
- The preacher we act “holier than thou”.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:18)
Webster's definition: 1. The faculty of sight, 2. Unusual foresight, 3. A mental image produced by the imagination, The experience of the supernatural as if with the eyes.
Joshua and Caleb had a real vision: “But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes; and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: "The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. "If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, 'a land which flows with milk and honey.' "Only do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them." (Numbers 14:6-9). Having a vision is more than just looking on the bright side. It is looking on God’s side.
II. VISION IS: THE FAITH TO BELIEVE: ATTITUDE
A wrong attitude says "Nobody else cares so why should I." or "Nobody appreciates anything I do so let’s see what they do when I don’t."
The courage of vision is to say "If God be for us, who can be against us."
