Understand [this], my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear [a ready listener], slow to speak, slow to take offense and to get angry. James 1:19 A Morning Prayer:God, thank you for loving who I am and who I am becoming and for not judging me on who I was before I first met you. I pray for Your grace in helping me become a woman who is ready to listen, one who's calm before giving my opinion, slow to get angry and is not easily offended. Amen
James 1:19-20 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
