THE WORTH OF A GOOD LISTENER
Some years ago someone placed this ad in a Kansas newspaper: “I will listen to you talk for 30 minutes without comment, for $5.00.” Sounds like a hoax, doesn’t it? But the person was serious. Did anybody call? You bet! It wasn’t long before this individual was receiving ten to twenty calls per day. The pangs of loneliness were so sharp that some people were willing to pay good money for a half hour of companionship.
Do you know of a lonely person within your span of relationships? Just lending an ear to such a person can be a precious act of love.
