The world is so fast pace nowadays and with that comes many challenges. One of them is that It’s so easy to lose our patience.
I spoke this week on James 1 verses 19 through 22. What is clear in this part of the book is that God doesn’t want us to be angry and that it’s not good for us.
The great thing about this part of scripture is we are given a formula in dealing with our emotions when faced with challenging situations.
We should be quick to listen, in other words wait before reacting. Then we should be slow to speak, in other words don’t shout your mouth off. When we give ourselves time and think before we speak it makes life much easier, stops us from losing our cool and often leads us away from anger.
May we be slow to speak and quick to listen.
