A Verse for Meditation

Let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger.  James 1:19 

  • Why does James exhort people to “be quick” to listen? How could you listen more quickly?
  • Having given instruction to listen, why does James say to be “slow” to speak? Isn’t he repeating himself?
  • What does anger have to do with speaking and listening?
  • When was the last time you regretted speaking before you listened? Why?
