Quick to listen, slow to speak
Thursday, March 10, 2022
Do you have a tendency to blow up at people? It’s easy to do. Someone says what you interpret to be the wrong thing at the wrong time, snaps at you for no reason, or treats you badly, and your first human instinct is to get MAD.
James points out the right response that needs to be programmed into your heart through the Holy Spirit. Listen first, weigh your response, and don’t be angry. If you’re that person who always responds with anger, it’s time to take his words to heart.
Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.
James 1:19 NLT
