Be Brief

“Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, & slow to become angry” (James 1:19b NIV).
Basically, be quick to listen to others and keep short accounts. Much damage is done because we don’t think before we speak. In a moment of rage we hurt others with our words. A woman who works diligently serving God and others, must learn to teach with wisdom and kindness. I learned a synonym for wisdom this week – sagacity – acuteness of mental discernment & sound judgment. If we all used sagacity in our interaction with others, we would experience much more harmony in our relationships.
