This morning I am going to write about Provwerns18:13, which says, "He who answers a matter before he hears it, It is folly and shame to him." I have that problem sometimes. You just want to defend yourself and make an excuse. My mom tells me this all of the time and I think that the Lord is showing me this verse for a reason. I'm going to listen to him and try to work on this character issue. I would ask that you would pray for me. Let's work on it together and try to do different. I hope that this encourages you to work on this quality and make it more pleasing unto the Lord.
