He who gives an answer before he hears, it is folly and shame to him. v13
The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him. v17
When you have kids, you find out there are always two sides to every story. You learn as a parent to get both side before making a judgment or giving out punishment. Waiting to hear both sides is difficult because we live in a ‘hurry up’ world. The Bible reminds us that its a loving thing to do. “Love is patient” 1 Corinthians 13:4.
Am I becoming a better listener?
God, thank you for the reminder today to slow down and listen. I want to hear Your voice more than any other.
