Think BEFORE You Speak

How many needless offenses, problems & fights would we save ourselves if we truly listened, instead of determining our response while the other person is still talking? Then we ask genuinely, “This is what I am hearing, is that what you meant?” Then we take a minute to respond in love!

“Understand this my dear brothers and sisters; You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, & slow to get angry.” James 1:19

If we choose to live this way, we will have less open mouth insert foot and better relationships.
