James 1:19–My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry
In this fast-paced society, we try to be quick about everything. Unfortunately, that often means that we are quick to get angry as well. When we are faced with a situation, do we seem to have a short fuse that results in us saying or doing things out of anger? We must realize that if we are to be quick to do anything, it should be quick to listen. Which will we be quick to do today?
Father, I will take today and will be quick to listen, both to You and to people around me. I will praise You today and will seek to reflect You in everything I do. May I be characterized as a person who is quick to listen and slow to speak and slow to become angry.
