Slow to Anger

Proverbs 14:29 AMP
29 He who is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who is hasty of spirit exposes and exalts his folly.

NLT … Those who control their anger have great understanding; those with a hasty temper will make mistakes.

James 1:19 AMP
19 Understand [this], my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear [a ready listener], slow to speak, slow to take offense and to get angry.

Lord help us to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry. Thank You that there is much wisdom in being slow to anger and slow to speak.

Lord Jesus, help me to have the patience to taste my words before I spit them out!

Psalm 141:3 NLT … Take control of what I say, O Lord,
and guard my lips.

From Our Daily Bread:

Lord, help me watch the words I say
And keep them few and sweet,
For I don’t know from day to day
Which ones I’ll have to eat. —Anon.

.

From Our Daily Bread:

Lord, set a guard upon my lips,
My tongue control today;
Help me evaluate each thought
And watch each word I say. —Hess

Bite your tongue before your tongue bites others
