“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:19-20
We are taught & tested by educators on just about everything in life except relationships which is what most of our life is about, marriage, family, friends, work collegues….
We need to heed the Bibles training on relationships. Here are 3 basics
1) Don’t be quick to speak, think before you speak.
2) Listen, listen, listen – Everyone appreciates being listened to.
3) Don’t have a quick temper. This is the fastest way to lose a relationship. Have a long fuse. Be long-suffering.
It’s easy to think that getting angry with someone will change them & fix the situation. But generally, it only gives vent to your heated emotions. Get to situations before it gets to you!
