DAY 174

James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

That is wisdom!

Who hasn't thought outloud and regretted it? Behind the loud words you will most likely find pride.

Pride demands to be heard and to be right. And feels so good while giving in to it.

Proverbs 29:23
A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit

Trust in the Lord takes away our need to be right and to be heard.

The thing for us to do is to hear God, do and say what He would have us do and say.

Step one is to be quiet before the Lord. Then listen. Then act accordingly.

Power is not found in the loudest voice or putting another in their place because we think we know better or are the only right way.

The most powerful are humble before God, understanding that He is all in all and only His way is right.

As the Bible says - even the fool looks wise when he holds his tongue.

Be wise, listen, and hear the Lord, and then speak in His wisdom.
