  1. Amen!! Precious truth we need to be reminded of, thank you. If we listen well to that still small voice of God, it will help guide our ears to be more observant listeners of others. Holy Spirit help us treasure Jesus above all else.

  2. The line “Jesus was flipping-tables angry” made me laugh but it was good illustration of the author’s point.

  3. In Courage,

    Much needed today. Been trying super hard lately to bite my tongue & tame the brain. Last fall my job changed drastically to one I don’t like. My attitude has shown up lately. I’m not happy with myself. It is not the “me” I want the world to see. Asking God to help me curb my tongue & give me soul reflection. It appears this is where God wants me right now!

    Blessings 🙂

  4. Thank you for this reminder. Especially, the struggle with the same human traits evident in Jesus’s time as in ours. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, as are we.

  5. My Grandma used to quote to me while I was growing up. One time I was being a smart-al-ik, & responded back, “That’s not in the Bible”. She said, “Are you sure?” So I used a Concordance, & found out I was wrong! I had to apologize for doubting her, & mouthing off at her.

    Later, when the Living Bible was originally published, she changed her quote to it; because she liked it better & so do I.
    “Be quick to listen, slow to speak, & even slower to become angry.”
