It’s Friday and I am joining the community hosted by Kate Motaung. For five minutes we write fast and free. The prompt is: SLOW
We are so blessed. God is patient with us.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. Psalm 103:8
At a time when emotions are running high in our country, I can gain wisdom from the Lord. I can always learn more patience.
The book of James offers this instruction.
Know this my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. James 1: 19-20
I am reminded of the word that I chose for this year, attentive.
In my conversations I can be more attentive, listening and taking in the point of view of others before I respond.
Quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.
Social media is a challenge. Can we be attentive and slow to anger on Facebook?
