Listen First!

imagesby Hazel Straub

How often have you openned your mouth and said things you later regretted? We were created with one mouth and two ears, for a purpose. Spend more time listening rather than talking. When we listen and keep our mouth closed, others will admire our wisdom. As we listen, we get more understanding of other’s viewpoints and are less likely to get angry and upset. We show respect and honor, as we listen.

Listen first!

Understand this my dear brothers and sisters: You must be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. (James 1:19 NLT)
