To answer before listening — that is folly and shame. ~ Proverbs 18:13
Have you ever offered advice to a friend without truly listening to all of their concerns?
Have you ever prayed to God just so you could let Him know what His answer should be?
Be quiet and listen when you don't know what to do or say. Prayer is a two way line of communication - listen twice as much as you speak.
GO DEEPER: JAMES 1:19-27
NEXT STEP: Spend a few minutes in prayer, just asking God to speak - and you listen. Meditate on his Word and listen to the indwelling of the Spirit.
