More Than Bread Devotional for 1/5/12

13 If one gives an answer before he hears,
it is his folly and shame.  – Proverbs 18:13

I ran across this verse while looking at some other passages earlier, but this one stuck out to me at the time.  I am sure that none of you have ever been guilty of not paying attention to someone else.  But I certainly have and it appears that I am not alone based on this verse.  God reminds us to listen and actually hear before we respond or do.  Take the time to hear; it saves a lot of folly and shame.
