James 1:19 “My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” (NIV)

If you happened to come across a human being with two mouths and one ear, what would your immediate reaction and thought will be? Surprised ? Weird? Freak? Strange? Yes most probably you would. And the fact is that some people are, as they have two mouths and one ear, literally speaking. Many people talk more than listening.

Have you ever wondered why we were born with a mouth and a pair of ears? Or rather why God created us to be such. He wants us to be slow to speak and quick to listen. But are we?
