Slow To Anger
God wants us to be slow to anger. If you’ve ever been in a situation where someone was angry, your emotions can get the best of you and cause you to be angry as well. Anger is like gasoline; when added to disagreement, it can excel emotions quickly. If we aren’t careful, anger can become a bad habit, but this is not pleasing to God. God has called us to be peacemakers. In Romans 12:18, the Bible says, “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” God doesn’t want us to stir strife up. This means that we don’t always have to say what comes to our mind or our “two cents.” Sometimes the best thing to do when there is tension between someone is to settle it peaceably. Don’t let anger get the best of you and cause you to sin.
A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
Proverbs 15:18 (KJV)
