《今日靈修默想》:「你們各人要快快的聽,慢慢的說,慢慢的動怒,因為人的怒氣並不成就神的義。」(雅1:19-20)

默想一:基督徒遇到爭論應有的態度是什麼?要存快聽、慢說、慢動怒的心態。人的怒氣通常是人情緒不正常的表現;一發怒,對事物的判斷容易偏差,在怒氣中所作的事,往往過於偏激。若不及時靠著主的大能大力平息怒氣,就會給魔鬼留地步。謹守口的,得保生命;大張嘴的,必致敗亡(箴13:3)

默想二:基督徒聽道應有的態度是什麼?要存一種飢渴慕義的心來聽。不要存心批評論斷;就算所聽的道不合你的口味,也不要急於反駁,免得銷滅聖靈的感動。謙卑的人在凡事上察驗主的真理與引導,在聽道上懂得快快地聽、慢慢地說、慢慢地動怒。上帝阻擋驕傲的人,賜恩給謙卑的人(雅4:6)。

禱告:父神,感謝祢造我有兩隻耳朵和一個嘴巴,好讓我快快的聽,慢慢地說,慢慢地動怒。求神賜給我智慧,懂得如何聽、如何講、如何回應,凡我所作的都是造就人並榮耀祢的名。奉主耶穌寶貴的名禱告,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “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.” (Jas 1:19-20 )

Meditation one: What is the attitude that Christians should have when they are confronted with argument? They should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. The anger of a person is usually an expression of an abnormal mood of that person; when one is angry, the judgment of things is easily biased, and the things done in anger are often too extreme. If you do not rely on the power of the Lord to calm your anger, you will be giving an opportunity to the devil. Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. (Pro 13:3)

Meditation two: What is the appropriate attitude that a Christian should have when listening to a preaching? One should listen with an attitude of hungering and thirsting for righteousness. Do not purposely try to criticize and judge; even if the preaching you heard does not suit your taste, do not quick to refute or quench the Spirit. A humble person discerns the truth and guidance of the Lord in all things, and when listening to a preaching, knows to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. (Jas 4:6)

Prayer: God our Father, thank You for making me have two ears and a mouth, so that I can quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. God, please give me wisdom, so I will know how to listen, how to speak, and how to respond. Let everything I do is for building each other up and glorifying Your name. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
