Slow to speak, slow to wrath

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    James 1:19 “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.”
    Aside from this caution allowing the discipline to listen to God first, it also means I am recognizing more readily how unreal erroneous claims are!
    I have found that often a quick negative reaction to something means I do not see the complete nothingness of the lie yet.

    This statement made me realize that I can’t react to situations. I need to hear what God is telling me. Don’t just blurt out words and don’t get angry. I must stay poised and express God, Love, at all times, whether it be in a strong rebuke or in a gentle word. Taking these steps I will be “obedient to the Mind that makes them.” S&H

    Thank God for Christian Science.
