Understand [this], my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear [a ready listener], slow to speak, slow to take offense and to get angry
May I listen more today and be not SO quick to speak. May I take time to know others and listen well to those coworkers, customers, acquaintances, friends and family members I see today.
May I also (even more so) listen to my Lord today as he speaks and be an attentive ready listener to his words and prayerfully seek him today. Because I tend to get so caught up in the details, and the “busy-ness” of life as Martha….. I would do well to be a lot more like Mary to learn to sit at his feet and to hear, hang onto and savor the words of our Sovereign God
