When you're in the right, you can afford to keep your temper. When in the wrong, you can't afford to lose it.
Today’s focus: Give up anger----be more patient
Proverbs 15:18 – A hot tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel.
When you choose to be patient, you can respond in a positive way to a negative situation. You are slow to anger. You choose to have a long fuse instead of a quick temper. Patience makes us wise. It doesn’t rush to judgment but listens to what the other person is saying. Patience stands in the doorway where anger is clawing to burst in, but waits to see the whole picture before passing judgment.
A soft answer turneth away wrath
So of cheerfulness, or a good temper, the more it is spent, the more it remains.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
