Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. (NLT) ( James 1:19 )

The word ALL in this verse is very important.  Yes it’s talking about you! It just takes the perfect storm for a personal situation to put you over the edge. Before you feel justified to say something damaging, remember this verse. And if you’re on the receiving end, be “quick” to forgive and “slow” to resent. 

Anger does not settle anything. Yes it’s an emotion that God gave us but we must exercise self control. If you are not able to control your flesh, ask the Holy Spirit to help you. In the end you will be amazed at the quietness and peace that God will place upon your spirit. Be an overcomer through the blood of Jesus.
