Day 305 of Giving Thanks

I am so grateful for great teaching. We have been in Proverbs for a while and the way that John brings this all together is amazing. I am thankful that I can be counted among the ones becoming smart – the topic today:
Smart People Manage Their Anger

1.     Smart people have a BIG God.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, 
       but fools despise wisdom and discipline.” ~Proverbs 1:7
“The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; 
       he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.” ~Proverbs 21:1
(see also Proverbs: 10:22, 16:4 & 9, 19:21, 20:22 & 24, 21:30, 28:25, 29:26)

2.    Smart people keep their mouths shut when angry.
‘Fools have short fuses and explode all too quickly; 
   the prudent quietly shrug off insults.” ~Proverbs 12:

3.    Smart people know when anger is appropriate.
“A king delights in a wise servant, 
       but a shameful servant incurs his wrath.” ~Proverbs 14:35

4.    Smart people understand the power of patience.
Better a patient man than a warrior, 
       a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.” ~Proverbs 16:32

5.    Smart people avoid angry people.
“Don't hang out with angry people; 
   don't keep company with hotheads.
Bad temper is contagious— 
   don't get infected.” ~Proverbs 22:24-25

Just a few of the references from today’s teaching, but very revealing. Right here is a lifetime of wisdom!
