>Are you communicating are just talking?

>While I was enjoying breakfast this morning with my wife at a restaurant, I noticed two men with Bibles open who appeared to be having a Bible study. One of them was talking fairly loud and seemed to be in control of the conversation. The longer I watched the table the more I noticed the other gentleman’s attention drifting.

I wonder how many times I have been mentoring/leading a study and felt like it went great. Only to have the other person disengage. The priority is not just getting words out but in communicating with the other person. Sometimes that is done best by just listening.
