Well the one thing I have learned is that I don't like being called honey or darling. I don't like being condesended to about technical details or mechanical issues. These are never issues I confront in person...only when my assumed fairer sex is on the phone.
But I realize that this is a gift. To be given the opportunity to experience something that you never would naturally...that's amazing! It's made me more sensitive to my own phone etiquitte. It's made me a better person to understand the experience of someone else.
It makes me think I should look for more opportunities to broaden my understanding. Have I truly sought to understand first while watching the protestors in our inner-cities? Have I truly sought first to understand the motivations of the illegal immigrants in my country? Have I truly sought first to understand the motivations of terrorists, agitators, atheists, etc?
Isn't that what God did for me? Don't I owe that to the people who he created and loves?
