James instructed his readers to be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath (James 1:19). For many of us, this is easier said than done. When we have a friend or loved one in a difficult situation we may be quick to respond with advice, but it's helpful to remember to consider the situation and be mindful of the advice we may wish to provide. The magnetic bookmark will serve as a reminder to look to the slow moving sloth as an example to be slow to speak in such situations. The bookmark is decorated with a watercolor style design of a sloth climbing a tree surrounded with flowers around the message:
QUICK TO listen,
SLOW TO speak.
Mark the pages of a book or Bible with this bookmark. Each time you open the book, the message will be there to remind you listen with the speed of a gazelle as you listen with the speed of a sloth. The message and design make this a wonderful gift or personal keepsake.
