Lesson for James 1:19

When I hear James 1:19 I immediately think of all the things I said during the day impulsively to others.

The Bible Reference states this verse actually means letting God be in control. When we quickly respond to others in anger, it is actually our way of trying to control our circumstances. Instead, we should give God control.

Depending on how old your children are, this may be perfect and adorable…or it may be too young.

Either way, I promise it will do the trick – you will memorize the verse (and tune) immediately and years later you won’t forget it. I sure haven’t.

Weekly tip

Try bringing the weekly bible verse into your nightly prayer. For example, this week you could ask God to help you and your kids to be “quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to
become angry when talking to your friends or teachers tomorrow.”
