Jesus knew the needs of those around him because he listened intently. He also knew that people experience the healing presence of God when they are able to listen to their own needs and are invited to name them. So he asked questions like “What do you want me to do for you?” and “What are you looking for?” Listening is a crucial first step in responding to human need.
