Proverbs 16:32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. ESV #Bible
We all know that when we loose our temper, and our veins are popping out of our heads, or our face wrinkles, and our nose is blowing air or snorting like a bull, we have lost it.
Being slow to anger is to infuse our wisdom into our anger, using caution, and clear thinking to guide our anger into motivating us to a good action.
Naturally this characteristic of being slow to anger, does rank us with, or even better than the mighty person who by his great strength accomplishes great feats.
We don’t have to accomplish out task with bruit strength, but with wisdom, and intelligence, and God’s Grace, which is far superior to bruit strength.
God has told us from the book of Genesis onward, that we can master and rule our own spirit’s. So as we are slow to anger we have embarked on ruling our own spirit, mastering it in all facets of our lives. This is as important as capturing a city, we capture our own spirit’s.
I believe this is only possible with God’s help and guidance. As we have in the past so in the future, we would fail greatly without Jesus the Christ our Great Sheppard leading us. Praise the Lord.
