Listening

November is a month that for some is a focus on gratitude.  I am so thankful for the ways The Lord has blessed my life, and for the opportunities, he continues to give this organization.  I am specifically grateful for the new team members he has brought our way and am excited to see what 2022 holds for all of us.

I am also grateful for the relationships God has given me at work and in my personal life.  Sometimes there are disagreements that arise, and I have learned to try and listen to others with the specific intent to understand their perspective.  This doesn’t mean that I always agree, but it does mean that I care enough about these individuals to empathize with their point of view.  Proverbs 18:2 tells us that it is foolish to not listen to others and to only want to air our own opinions.  I believe this is so true for me at work, at home, and I think it is specifically true in today’s society. 

Sometimes it is difficult, even painful, to listen to someone else and not try to fix it.  I believe listening with the intent to understand others and not fix things or change their mind is a powerful tool we can use to help cultivate stronger relationships. 

Wishing you a blessed holiday season-

Jon Thompson,

Owner, Thompson Electric Inc.
