This time, I felt and I was convicted by God to take time to listen and zip my mouth to give way for others to talk. I learned that as you take time to listen you will get to know the person really well and understanding their point of views that will help us to be open minded. As I took time to listen, I learned a lot. These past days have been a learning experience as I interviewed one of my friend and a volunteer pastor in our church. I learned a lot about passion and being a servant as we humble ourselves before the Lord. But that does not end there. There's a viral video today that's circulating around Facebook about a talk given by Professor Winnie Monsod. After watching it, I've never been this involved and engaged in my academics. I'm not a UP student nor a Dean's Lister in our school but this taught me a lot on loving our country and being proud of it. I learned how to give back by being a person of HONOR and EXCELLENCE in everything that we do. With that in mind, INTEGRITY will follow and that kind of person I want to be. I want to apply it in my relationship with God, family, friends, church and I believe that's the kind of person God wants is to be.
Watch and be inspired by this video:
"Im only one, but I am one. I can't do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I ought to do. With the grace of God, I will do it."-Prof. Monsod
When you take time to listen, you also take time to learn.
