Let It Out

This Kleenex commercial captures the power of listening. Jesus only directly answered three of the 183 questions that he was asked. That is surprising for those of us who have grown up thinking the function of religion is to give people answers and solve their problems for them. Jesus knew how to ask the right questions to draw people out and get them to think more deeply, more critically. We could learn a lot from Jesus and this Kleenex commercial.

It seems that what is moving about this commercial is its humnanity. If we could all listen to those around us, perhaps we would find within ourselves that very thing which we find holy in others. It is not a trait that is unique to one religion or culture. It is simply a choice you get to make every day.
