This is something that used to be so very hard for me and I still stumble with it once in a while. Being quick to say whatever came to mind was always easy for me, but the problem was that the words that came out weren’t thought out or even positive. Being quick to listen means that I needed to shut my mouth no matter how bad I want to spit something out. Slow to speak means that it gives my mind time to process what the Holy Spirit needs me to say. If we respond to quickly we can misinterpret something and maybe start to anger us. Take the time to follow these steps with someone today and you will be pleasantly surprised at the end result.
