Bible Text: James 1:19-27 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels
As we close our June series on listening, we get some straight advice from the letter of James. But it’s hard advice when our emotions are making our choices about how to treat people. “Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.” It’s especially hard if we just try to do it because we think we have to be nice, but it gets easier if we do it because we are called to establish the righteousness of God. Listening serves the Kingdom, and it has us serving others’ needs before our own.
