Message of the Day: Be A Good Listener, Control Your Tongue So You Can Tame Your Temper.
“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath…” (James 1:19, NKJV)
It is our tendency as human beings to be ill-tempered especially in times of distress or difficulty. A good way to escape this is to be quick in listening to the word of truth. We must at all times, be ready to listen than to speak. The ancient says, “Men have two ears, and but one tongue, that they should hear more than they speak.” These must be trained to be always open and always ready to receive instruction while the tongue is surrounded with double row of teeth to hedge it in.
It is imperative for a Christian to be a good listener! Listen more and talk less so we can tame our temper.
