Here’s an interesting thing: What often irritates us in someone else is what we do ourselves.

You know that I am very close to my younger sister Jean, who is also a pastor. Years ago, I noticed that when we were on the phone, she would sometimes “checkout” of the conversation. I would know immediately when this happened. Because it upset me, I talked to my husband, John, who very gently told me that I do the same thing. He said once that happened it was no use saying something important. I was gone, even though I was still at the other end of the line—I just wasn’t listening any more. Imagine how embarrassed I was! I’ve tried so hard not to do it, but I know that there are times when I do. And I hate it that I do that!
