Eugene Peterson in the Message expresses James 1:19 like this:  “Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue the message.”  Those intersections are not roadways but relationships.  Paul said, “When you talk, do not say harmful things, but say what people need–words that will help others become stronger.  Then what you say will do good to those who listen to you.” (Eph 4:29 NCV)
