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.
