Help Me Holy Spirit!!!

It's a glorious Friday Morning!

 

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,

These three things (quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger) apply to our personal relationship with others and our relationship with God.


Listen more & speak less.


Listening means being others-centered. Listening means I value you. Build each other up (Ephesians 4:29)


Listening is difficult when we're prideful, selfish, angry. We think our ideas are more important than others.


Listening + being teachable = learning - I never learned anything while I was speaking.


Meditate on God's Word and let it speak to you...Have a glorious day!
