"Be quick to listen,

Slow to speak,

And slow to become angry."

I love this chapter in the bible.. It is a treasure- house of ancient wisdom thats relevent in our daily lives today....but its not so simple as it appears..
I wonder if Iwill ever be able to master the one given above..

Yeh. Like the Chinese proverb that says, One moment of patience may ward off great disasters, and one moment of impatience may ruin a whole life!

Be quick to listen - Ok... possible

Slow to speak - can try, achievable

And slow to become angry - almost impossible :D

Back to bible? everything alrite?

Sarah said...

I have the order ulta pulta.. quick to think, fast to get angry and slow to cool down...I guess that makes me human!!!

Alexis Leon said...

Nice photograph. I agree with Geo. The first two things are fine and I am quite good at it.

In the second case, I am so good that I don't even speak.

But last one is absolutely impossible and when that happens the second and first one are too impossible :-)

I love this one..I have this habit of opening a random page of the Bible everyday. I still get astonished at the acccuracy with which I get an answer or an instruction on something pertaining to the day.

Thats a hard one because we are often quick to speak.

Beautiful picture... and, that has
to be one of the best from Proverbs. Thanks for sharing that.
You have a great blog!

sometimes slow to speak might turn out to be pretty regretful :-< :D

"Anger" is my weak point too :(
Am in much better position in controlling it but I still have a long way to go...

Like every verse in Bible this verse opens a brand new window to each .

I can't get angry. Oops! I get angry but I don't usually express it.Thats a problem for me. There are situations in life where you should express anger.

txs everybody..hmmm.. i feel we all need to be reminded of such things..off and on.. otherwise its so easy to get involved in small issues and get angry..
:))
it doesnt say that we shoulnt react.. just to be 'slow'.. think and react..

Ekta said...

slow to get angry!!
That seems impossible for a short tempered person like me!

illusion said...

beautiful picture, and beautiful words...

Sujit said...

yup wonderful words that keep things cool and calm.. but very hard to follow.. may be one or two we can follow but all three.. a tough job!

steller said...

yes be as calm and as the lake and you will invite people towards you.. that's precisely what i learned in webdate*com where i met a lot of people who needs understanding about different issues in their lives.. believe me it was very rewarding that they come up to you and tehank you for simply being there for them..

Maya Cassis said...

wish i could master it too...I am in real need for it right now!!!
