Uncontrolled Anger…..

The one slow to anger is better than a mighty man,
And the one controlling his temper than one conquering a city.
================================
On the other hand, there is nothing beautiful about uncontrolled anger. Adam and Eve’s firstborn son, Cain, “grew hot with great anger” at his brother Abel and ‘proceeded to assault him and kill him.’  While there may be times when we rightly feel angry, we must be on guard against allowing our anger to get out of control. Proverbs 16 verses 32 clearly states: “He that is slow to anger is better than a mighty man, and he that is controlling his spirit than the one capturing a city.” Uncontrolled anger is a sign neither of strength nor of virtue. It is a weakness that can ‘cause one to go in a way that is not good.’
