While thinking about words today, I recognized how the world often applauds quick wit or sarcastic retorts which is seen as humor. As I grow spiritually, I know I should be quick to listen and slower to reply.
Proverbs 12:18 reads, “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” James 1:19, “My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.”
The Bible covers every need we have. To me, it doesn’t get any clearer than those two verses.
