DAY 26: LISTEN

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.

James 1:19

There is a lot of noise in this world. Actually, our culture seems to suffer from an aversion toward silence. There is also a rising sense that everyone needs to share their thoughts on everything. A quick perusal through your social media feed will confirm this. Silence and listening is becoming a lost art. Don’t let it be lost on your kids. 

Pray this truth over your teen today.

Lord,

Today, may ____________ be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.

Amen.

Now, pray this truth over you in correlation to your teen.

Lord,

May I be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry with _____________.

Amen.

Finally, pray this truth over your entire family.

Lord,

May we be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry with each other.

Amen.

As you have prayed this truth over your teen, yourself and your entire family, now take some time to evaluate how you can better display this truth. What needs to happen in your home to make James 1:19 more evident? ________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
