PATIENCE VS ANGER

 
Proverbs 14:29


"A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly." NIV


"He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly."


If we are patient in trying circumstances, we are able to gain deep understanding into the situation and to make wise decisions about how we will respond. If we are given to anger in trying situations, we react from instant emotional energy that exposes our ignorance of the reality of things and causes us to look like fools.


Heavenly Father, when difficult and trying times happen, help us to use patience so that we will be a testimony to others of the loving patience You have for us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
