Learn To Listen To Others

James 1:19 – Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

Proverbs 18:13 – He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

When someone sets down to tell you about their problems, most of the time, they do not want you to chime in. They just want to talk. They need to vent. Many people will come to Christians to talk because they need to vent, and a Christian is supposed to be loving and caring. They know we can pray for their problems. They don’t need your input every few seconds. So, learn to just set and listen to them. Learn to just let them get things off their chest. Then, if they ask for advice, that is when you can speak up.
