Quick to Yell, Slow to Hear



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


As a nation, we have it all backwards. We are quick to speak and even quicker to judge. Everyone talks at once, and we can’t hear each other. So we yell louder. 

Not God’s way. 

And we wonder why things are such a mess.bless quiet

  1. The tumult and the shouting dies,
    the captains and the kings depart.
    Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
    an humble and a contrite heart.

      Thank you for letting me know about the repeating confirmations. I haven’t heard this from anyone else, but I’ll check into it. Technology is amazing. Except when it isn’t.
