It can be easy to have a short temper, speak too quickly, and to ignore what God has been speaking into our lives. The book of James says that as believers we are called to live differently. We are challenged to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger. The true listening to which James is referring is not just a high volume of information passing in one ear and out the other, but an intentional receiving with practical application through faith-filled action! "What is God saying?" "What has He already said?" God will guide us to live these things out well in the real world while serving others humbly. This is part of our outward expression of our inward relationship with Jesus.
