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.
