Keeping an open posture towards others is not only endearing and good for relationships; it is also a great way to keep learning. One of the traits of the elusive characteristic of humility is to listen genuinely as if the other person really does have something to teach us. I have tried to live sincerely believing that everyone I meet has something they can teach me if I will draw it out of them.
“The purposes of a man's heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out.” Proverbs 20:5
