Calming An Angry Heart

calming“Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires”  (James 1:19-20).

“In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down on your anger”  (Ephesians 4:26).

“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger”  (Proverbs 15:1).

“A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly”  (Proverbs 14:29).

“Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city”  (Proverbs 16:32).

“Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools”  (Ecclesiastes 7:9).

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.  Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you”  (Ephesians 4:31-32).

“But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips”  (Colossians 3:8).

“Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret- it leads only to evil”  (Psalm 37:8).
