40 DITW [Days in the Word] – Day # 23

40 DITW – DAY # 23

 PARAPHRASE IT!  James 1:19-20 [NIV] My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

MY PARAPHRASE:  Getting mad keeps us from being right with Dad. Come on family lets listen more, speak less and save angry for something bigger than us.

APPLYING THESE VERSES TO MY LIFE:  Being right with God, is having God’s patience for others. Listening more than I talk  AND Distancing myself from angry.

PRAYER

Father, Give me ears to hear, a tongue to bless, and a heart to love.
