James 1.19 – March 31, 2020

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,

(James 1:19, NIV)

Another one of those verses that is easy to understand what James is calling us to do … it is just much harder to actually do it.

Thought Questions:

How well do you listen? Why would listening be a challenge for people?

Publilius Syrus is quoted as saying: “I often regret that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.” When have you found this to be true in your own life?

Why do we become angry and what things can we do to NOT react in anger? What things help you be slower in angry?
