Quick To Listen, Slow To Speak, Slow To Become Angry: A Short Sermon and Commentary.



Key Verse:
James 1:19, NIV My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

2/13/18
It’s been said that God gave us two ears and one mouth because He wants us to listen twice as much as we speak. 🙂 Such wisdom, and such a great reminder!

Quick to listen.
Slow to speak.
Slow to become angry…

Dear Friends,
When we make a habit of listening much more than we speak, we give ourselves a much better chance of understanding a situation rather than jumping to conclusions.

When we make a habit of listening much more than we speak, we give ourselves a much better chance of speaking with wisdom, kindness, encouragement and clarity, rather than saying the first thing that comes to our mouths.

When we make a habit of listening much more than we speak, we give ourselves a solid chance of hearing God’s voice.

*May we always remember that silence is not weakness.




*May we always remember that “answering before listening is both stupid and rude.” (Proverbs 18:13, MSG)

*May we always remember that “a person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.” (Proverbs 19:11, NIV)

***May we all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.***
So help us God.
