Learning to control your temper
Focusing on Proverbs 25 vs. 28...
28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
Persons struggle with keeping their tempers in check for a number of reasons:
The Bible says such a person is like a city without walls. When you give into your feelings to say how you feel and express yourself how you want to, without first thinking of the consequences, that you may be hurting someone by what you say then you are effectively letting down your guard and exposing yourself to a number of negative things such as:
The bible says "A soft word turneth away wrath...
...but grievous words stir up anger."
So next time you get angry:
You will find that when you review the past in a calm state of mind that what you were getting angry over was no big thing and you will be glad that you kept your mouth shut. For by guarding your mouth and emotion you are guarding your heart and protecting yourself and others from unnecessary hurt.
Remembering always that God is our coach and he can help us manage anger.
