Listen more, speak less.

[The Glory Unveiled]

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, ( James 1:19 )

It is amazing to discover that if you really listen, so much is being spoken. Heaven is always sending out coded messages and keys that we need for life and godliness. But it is difficult or rather impossible to hear someone while you are talking. This crisis is the reason why we are unable to hear the voice of the Father on a daily basis. Apart from the destructive noise in the world, we are always speaking. The world is now driven by the culture of commentary rather than the culture of listening. It is very likely to be caught in the web of anger if one is not a good listener. Many people who got angry at some point later discovered that they could have saved themselves from anger if they had listened well enough. Listening well to people when they speak is a good attitude that help avoid so many dangers. We are admonished to be slow to speak and quick to listen. In listening we increase in knowledge and wisdom. Instead of rushing to talk, let us listen more to people. And most importantly, instead of always talking and asking God for things in prayer, let us go to the presence of God, only to listen and to know the mind of God.

Prayer_Bead: Good Lord, Precious King, thank you for the opportunity to reflect your glory and life. Help me to be slow to speak and swift to listen. In Jesus name, Amen.
