Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend
Anger Issue Anyone?
Proverbs 29:11 (NIV)
“A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.”
I have an anger issue. I saw it growing up. My dad was generally a very calm person but when he blew up, he went a little crazy. I have a similar issue; I have no excuse for it. I know better but I find myself acting like the fool that Proverbs talks about. Of course, my family gets this foolishness the most. Pray for me. I believe it has gotten better but probably the better person to ask is my wife. Honestly, I don’t know if she would agree. Pray for me.
Prayer: Lord, forgive me. Lord, give me grace. I want to be a man who keeps himself under control for Your glory. Amen.
