“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;” James 1:19 ESV
I love how Jesus understands the depths of our heart and how he knows us in a way that is intimate and eternal. He knew that we would become offended with one another. He even realized that we might include him in some of our offenses. Jesus loves us anyway.
Jesus isn’t quick to speak in anger. He is completely mindful of our intentions and actions. He knows us. He listens to us. He hears us. He is for us.
I wonder how we might affect those around us if we love like Jesus loves? Could it bring a change in heart?
Evaluate your relations. Do you provide the heart of Jesus to those around you? Let us be mindful as Jesus is and was and choose to set an example of his love.
