If you’ve ever used a record player or a tape recorder, you’re probably aware that there is an appropriate speed at which things are meant to be played. If you fiddle with the speed setting you can get some really weird sounding stuff to come out. That’s the entire foundation of a couple of genres of remix music, in fact!

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.

James 1:19

Listen to what James says then. He doesn’t instruct us not to speak, nor does he say to never get angry. What does he say?Pick the appropriate speed! We won’t sound like Jesus otherwise.
