Being a good listener starts with asking good questions. 做個好聽眾首先要問好問題

A person’s thoughts are like water in a deep well, but someone with insight can draw them out.  ~ Proverbs 20:5  (GNT) ~


Many relational problems are caused by the lack of communication. Being a good listener goes a long way to building great relationship.

There is an old saying, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”  To really engage people in great conversation is to show them that you really care. How? Start by asking open-ended question instead of questions that only require a “yes” or “no” answer.

For example, instead of asking, “Did you enjoy your vacation?” why not ask, “What was the most enjoyable part of your vacation?” If you really want to get deeper and better understand your family and friends, ask this question – “tell me more” and you will be surprised by the response. It will enrich your relationships.

COVID-19 has forced many families to stay “locked in”. Why not use this opportunity to grow your relationships?

人心懷藏謀略,好像深水,惟明哲人才能汲引出來。~箴言20:5~


許多關係出問題是由於缺乏溝通引起的,傾聽有助於建立良好的人際關係。

有句諺語說:「人們不在乎你知道多少,直到他們知道你在乎多少。」真正讓人敞開對話的關鍵在於你顯示出真的關心對方。如何做呢?從開放式問題開始讓對方回答,而不是“是”或“不是”的問題。

例如,與其問對方「你享受這次的假期嗎?」,不如問對方:「你這次假期最喜歡的部分是什麼?」若想要更深入了解你的家人和朋友,可以問:「告訴我更多。」你會驚訝於對方的反應。這能豐富你們彼此間的關係。

COVID-19迫使許多家庭「關在家中」,何不利用這機會好好發展彼此間的關係呢?
