Listening To The Spirit

Growing up I came from a home that was loud, crazy and busy. There wasn’t ever any times of peace from what I remember and when their was peace it was only ever for a short amount of time. As I grew older I began to learn that not every home situation is like this. In college I had friends and roommates who would listen and reply to me in a caring, thoughtful, loving, respectful way. I could tell they really took the time to listen, think about their response and how it would affect me to reply in the right way. It wasn’t rushed.

I noticed they didn’t jump to a conclusion right away or force me to do something I didn’t want to do. Since then, Ive learned that some people live their life in a way that is quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. I’ve decided to live my life this way. Old habits die hard and how you’re brought up can really push you into old habits because that’s what you know. I still have to work on being quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger daily by asking God for grace.

James 1:19 “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger”

Prayer Starter: Lord, please help me and others today be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. Amen.
