If you’re only listening to people who think like you, you’re missing out on a lot. Politically, theologically and relationally.
You’re missing out on conversations that might educate you.
You’re missing out on ideas that might challenge you.
You’re missing out on knowing the ‘why’ not just the ‘what’.
You’re missing out on knowing how to respond in ways that might actually win another person over to your side.
And you’re shutting down honest conversation from good people who have been bullied into silence by all the yelling.
