Slow Down!

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Proverbs 19:11; Proverbs 15:18; Proverbs 16:32

There are quite a few verses in Proverbs that give us instruction and insight about slowing down when it comes to getting angry. We looked at a couple of verses yesterday, and now we are going to look at three more with a similar message today.

"Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense" (Proverbs 19:11).

"Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city" (Proverbs 16:32).

"A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention" (Proverbs 15:18).

When things are repeated over and over in the Bible, it means it's important and we would be wise to take note of it and make any needed changes in our own lives.

Would you describe yourself as being "slow to anger"? Would other people describe you this way? What would/does being "slow to anger" require of you? Why and how does being "slow to anger" benefit all involved? Tami

Slow to anger? Yes and no. Certain things like be corrected can trigger an unreasonable outburst of anger in me.


Would other people describe you this way?
I do not know.


What would/does being "slow to anger" require of you?

To do my part to avoid the "need" to be anger or cause it to be
stirred-up! Discipline on my part.
