Regulated Responses

Today's reading: James 1:19-21

When we encounter trials--when something unexpected happens, someone takes advantage of us, we're mistreated--our human impulse is to immediately react in anger. But God wants and expects us to respond differently. The clear message James delivers in verse 19--that we should be "quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger," is a vital one for us as followers of Christ. While responding in this manner can feel like a tall order, God is with us and we can draw on His strength to help us slow down and process the situation and then respond in the most appropriate way.

What benefits have you experienced when you've responded to a bad situation by being quick to hear and slow to speak or get angry? Why is following this command so important when we're dealing with people who don't yet know Christ? What about with other Christ-followers? Tami
