His kingdom now is near, For those with ears to hear
Who can you give both of your ears to today? How will you listen more than talk? How will you hear to understand?
Use your ears
Have a pen and paper to take notes while you listen to someone. Summarize back to them what you said.
Call a friend, see how many questions you can ask before they can ask you one in return. Build each question based on what you heard them say in their answer.
Sit in silence and listen for even the littlest sound. How noisy is it when everything else is silent? Enjoy your peppermint while you do so.
