Be patient with people

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

Daily Devotional

At one time or the other, we have proven to be annoying, whinny, simply put, difficult in other dealings with other people.

Recognising this, the question is 'how do we handle this, knowing that you are part of the problem?'

We can solve the problem by learning to deal better with our colleagues, fellow students, siblings, in-laws, by simply being patient.

This can be done by learning to listen properly, in order to avoid responding with anger.

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

Applying this in our dealings with people could be the key to saving marriages, relationships, and more.

Today, we are all advised to be 'slow to anger', and be patient, as God is with us!
