Swift to Hear

James 1:19–27 (KJV)

19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Slow to speak –

Proverbs 10:19 (NAS)

19       When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable,

But he who restrains his lips is wise.

Ecclesiastes 5:2 (NAS)

   2  Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few.

Slow to wrath -

Proverbs 10:12 (NAS)

12       Hatred stirs up strife,

But love covers all transgressions.

V21-

Lay apart or Put off -

Colossians 3:8–9 (NAS)

   8  But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.

   9  Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices,

Ephesians 4:22–24 (NAS)

22  that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit,

23  and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

24  and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.

Naughtiness –

Colossians 3:8–10 (NAS)

    8   But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.

    9   Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices,

  10   and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him—

Meekness —  a calm temper of mind, not easily provoked (James 3:13). Peculiar promises are made to the meek (Matt. 5:5; Isa. 66:2). The cultivation of this spirit is enjoined (Col. 3:12; 1 Tim. 6:11; Zeph. 2:3), and is exemplified in Christ
