Slow To Speak

Something happened today that made someone got upset .
It wasn’t a major life changing thing, but it
upsetting none the less. Then something else happened
to that same someone. Since they were already upset,
they got even more upset and then nothing was okay
with anything. People tend to keep getting upset once
that emotion kicks in. We can handle that feeling in
many ways but one of them should not be to speak right
away. God, in His infinite wisdom, has given a way to
deal with being upset or angry. “Wherefore, my beloved
brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to
speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not
the righteousness of God (James 1:19-20).” From this
scripture we can see that the quicker we are to speak,
the faster we may become angry. When we become angry,
we might do or say things unbecoming of a child of
God. As hard as it may be sometimes, keep your mouth
closed when you start to feel upset. Think about what
happened and try to realize that the world isn’t
ending. Calm down and then talk. Make your Father

In Christ, Steve Preston
