Open Your Ears -- Not Your Mouth

Acts 26, 27 Proverbs 29

Do you see someone who speaks in haste? There is more hope for a fool than for them. Proverbs 29:20

Why is God so opposed to my talking too quickly? Because that means I have not taken the time to listen. We have all been in debates/arguments before where nothing is settled because both parties are too intent on telling their viewpoint they fail to listen. How important is it to God that we listen to one another? There is no greater insult than to call one a fool (person who rejects that God exists). This has been a difficult lesson for me to learn. And when I have failed to listen the result has always been my failure to learn and my failure to respect those speaking to me. Take it from one who has learned the hard way—be quick to listen today and really slow to speak.
