Active listening is a skill that is taught to those in counseling and ministerial positions with the purpose being to always fully hear the person speaking and from where they are coming. Jesus was an active listener-knowing he was always being tested, the intention of the questions, and then how to respond so as to answer their question and not fall into their trap. Masterfully Jesus shows us how to listen, receive, and shake off verbal attacks with ease. Learn about active listening and find ways to practice and then enact this skill with those who communicate with you.
