19 Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. 20 Human anger[a] does not produce the righteousness[b] God desires. 21 So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.
22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.
Wow, there's a lot in there!
Quick to listen
Slow to speak
Slow to get angry
Get rid of filth and evil
Listen to God's Word
But don't just listen, do what it says
It doesn't mention it in this passage but it's always a good reminder that all of these things can only be done through the power of the Holy Spirit, not our own strength.
