Do you know the four words that are sure to get anyone’s attention? “As you were saying …” This indicates that you were paying attention to what they said, and remembered it, and thought it was worth repeating.
Who wouldn’t respond favorably to that? Who doesn’t like to hear their own words repeated again by others? I am the same way. The words I speak are eternal truth. They are spirit and life to you. You internalize them and make them effective in your life by speaking them again. It doesn’t bother me for you to bring my word into remembrance before me. It honors my by showing that you believe it and take it seriously.
