AVOIDING BAD ATTITUDES

June 20, 2017

Tuesday

 

James 1:19

 

This you know, my beloved brethren but everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger;

 

 

LESSON

 

We may respond to trials by complaining about them and becoming angry over them. James advised his readers to remain silent (“slow to speak”) and calm (“slow to anger”) and to listen submissively to (“quick to hear”) the Word of God. Many people have observed that we have two ears and one mouth, which ought to remind us to listen twice as much as we speak.

 

Christians must keep a tight rein on their tongues. It’s okay to get muddy with soil but Christians are called to be spiritually holy! And so, I believe another way of saying this verse then is, Christians are not to allow anything from society to negatively impact their Godly lives!

 

Memory verse: Galatians 5:20

 

The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
