James 1: 19 "Know this, my beloved brothers: Let every person be QUICK to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger" ESV
Fast, Swift, Rapid, Speedy, Hasty, Flying, Instant
Crawling, Slow, Creeping, Lazy, Dragging, Dilatory, Lagging
This is a wonderful reminder to us to be QUICK to listen but slow to speak. It is almost as reminding us that we have two ears and only one mouth, and to use them accordingly.
Many of us do the very opposite, we are slow to hear but QUICK to speak. We should wait for the other person to finish talking before we talk, this is the friendly reminder from the word of God through the apostle James.
May God help us to be QUICK to listen to His word.
