I posted yesterday about the chatter bug among me. I need to confess I'm often on. I'm not always "Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry," James 1:19. It definitely happens more than I'd like.
Each time it does, God gently reminds me. Just this past week someone was speaking and I interrupted. Now I know it can be Ok to do that in the natural course of things, however, this time it wasn't. It sounds silly and perhaps to small a thing to be concerned with. But then why is it in James? It is important to God. I didn't show this person proper respect (1 Peter 2:17a) to this person.
Bring on the practice. With God in my side, who can stop me?
