Proverbs 16:23 says, Wise people always think before they speak, so what they say is worth listening to. James 1:19 talks about being slow to speak. You should be quick to listen and slow to speak or to get angry. Someone once said, 'you have two ears and one mouth, so you should listen twice as much as you talk.' Most people don't really listen - they're usually busy multi-tasking, thinking about what they're going to say next, or what they're going to have for lunch. Next time you're talking to someone, really pay attention to the person you're talking to, be quick to listen and slow to speak.
