Word for the day: “Anger Rest in the Bosom of Fools”

Ecclesiastes 7:9 (NKJV) Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests in the bosom of fools.

The frustrations of everyday living can sometimes get the better of us, and when we allow minor disappointments to cause us major problems. When we allow ourselves to become overly agitated by the unavoidable ups and downs of life, we can and do become overly stressed, emotional, and the most dangerous of all angry.

Anger often leads to impulsivity; impulsivity often leads to poor decision-making; and poor decision-making tends to erode our character. So, if you’d like to increase your life in divine wisdom while, at the same time, strengthening your character, you should learn to control your temper before it controls you, (I know this truth more than I care to admit).

When you allow yourself to become angry, you are certain to defeat at least one person; yourself. When you allow the small and even the large frustrations of everyday life to overtake your emotions, you do harm to yourself and to your loved ones. Have you ever experienced this? I know I sure have and thats why I am reaching out to you today.

So today and every day, think about protecting yourself against the kind of angry thinking that inevitably takes a toll on your emotions and your relationships. Anger can be good if it moves you towards a place of resolve and mitigating problems in your life in a productive manner. You can start today and shift the atmosphere in your everyday life for the better. Have a reflective day about how to improve the quality of your life!
