There are times when pastors, friends and even our spouse, give us information that is very hard to hear. At those times we must remember, “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” (James 1:19) This is often not easy to do, but doing so keeps us open to new information helping us and our relationships.
