Proverbs 16:32 says, “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city”. How we usually react to certain instances and circumstances we find ourselves in, speaks and tells a lot about our personalities. How do we react when provoked, annoyed or hurt? Are we the types that think through before we act or we just make utterances that equally hurt others because we find ourselves provoked too? Proverbs tells us again in chapter 15:1 “a soft answer turneth away wrath but grievous words stir up anger”. When provoked, angered or hurt, do not be quick to reply and retaliate, instead, a soft answer after thinking through will turn away any wrath or prevent any regrets after actions taken without any thoughts. Ecclesiastes 7:9 tells us not to be hasty in the spirit to be angry, for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.  Let us all be guided not to take actions in anger and be mindful of our utterances in anger, words carry and have power, after is it spoken, it cannot be erased . We pray to be guided in our utterances when angry, because we cannot prevent anger but we have the power to control it.

Fruitful week to us all.
