If someone who you think has got it wrong
Begins to speak about a subject dear,
Your mind is thinking of an answer long
Before the words that come from his lips clear.
Would you want someone judging what you say
Before you have a chance to speak your mind?
Yet often you assume you know the way
And those who think so diff’rent must be blind.
You are a fool if you refuse to hear
What others say because you know you’re right;
The Lord may plant the Truth in those you sneer
And you will miss a chance to see the Light.
So listen carefully, you might just learn,
And let the Spirit lead when it’s your turn.
“He that answereth a matter before he heareth it,
it is folly and shame unto him.”
Proverbs 18:13 KJV
