Listening and Doing
Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.
James 1:19 NLT
[ Qualities Needed in Trials ] So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
James 1:19 NKJV
Hearing and Doing the Word
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;
James 1:19 ESV
[ Act on What You Hear ] Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God’s righteousness doesn’t grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.
James 1:19 MSG
We as humanity must be satisfying to Christ if we are going to be a follower. As a believer we need to remember three things.
1.Quick to listen
2.Be slow to speak
3.Slow to anger
God doesn’t like sinfulness and violence.
He doesn’t like ungodly actions.
So you need to focus and listen and hear his teachings to speak good of his stories to others. Speaking in manner of honesty and honoring to God thinking be you say anything.
God fully disapproves of anger and outbursts. He will not tolerate it in anyway in anything you do. We need to be slow to anger wise in actions.Not act out in aggressive manners. We need to stay calm in what we do. Yes as humans this is very hard to do but with the right practice and thoughts it can be done. Hear intently what others have to speak to you especially God. Speak out of love after you’ve thought things out and are familiar with the consequences of the words and actions. Act out of love and humbleness with no act of aggression. For this God will be pleased and take great pride in you. This will show him the honor he deserves.
