Lead With Your Ears

  

Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear.

God’s righteousness doesn’t grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage.

In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life. (‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭19-21‬ MSG)

We tend to do the opposite: anger rises up, we lead with our mouths then follow with our ears.

We speak before we listen and defend before we understand.

You don’t have to allow anger to dictate your reactions or our words and you don’t have to prove you are right.

Being humble is leading with your ears and trying to understand someone else’s point of view.

Being humble is asking for God’s help and advice in how to respond to it.

Being wise is following His advice and putting it into practice.
