Understand [this], my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear [a ready listener], slow to speak, slow to take offense and to get angry.” James 1:19 AMP

The Bible says: “We should be good listeners and slow speakers.” Those who spend time listening learn much and sin less. 

He who answers a matter before he hears the facts–it is folly and shame to him. [John 7:51.]” Proverbs 18:13 AMP

Many have made fools out themselves by the quick speaking and unwilling to listen and learn from others.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your word. Help me to be a good listener and a slow speaker so that I won’t sin against You with my mouth in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
