Be slow in your anger,
be slow to show your wrath
for you are called to peace
with self-control as your path.
Be not puffed up with pride,
be not filled with malice
for you are called to be gentle
not thick-skinned and callus.
Put off all bitterness and hate,
put off what's boiling inside you
for you are called to temperance
in all that, you say and do.
Take off that old sinful man,
take off the old wicked nature
for you are called to His love
not conflict and heated wager.
Let not the sun set on your anger,
let it not go down on your wrath
for God is leading you away from
the self-righteous, pompous path.
Be kind to one another,
be tenderhearted and forgiving
for Jesus is God's only example
of how Christians should be living!
Proverbs 16:32 ~ KJV
"He that is slow to anger is better than the
mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he
that taketh a city."
