“Look at me when I’m talking to you.”
Perhaps this was once your 7th grade teacher’s instruction to you.
“Look at me when YOU’RE talking to me.”
Today, this is the unspoken cry of many 4th and 5th graders in your ministry.
Eye contact brings you into the present, and as Sean notes in today’s podcast, “As you become present, it increases your ability to give something meaningful to the people around you.”
How about you? How do you bring yourself “into the present”? Share your ideas with us in the comment section below.
