Do not lose your temper it only leads to harm. Psalm 37:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
The next time someone does or says something that I do not like I instantly stop! Then take a deep breath and pray to the Holy Spirit for wisdom, strength and grace on the proper manner in which to reply ( even if that means keeping my mouth shut ).
This will avoid a lot of hurt and regret by making the right choices at this point. This is the prayer that will be said:
Please Jesus, help me to look beyond what people say and see their heart.
Please forgive me for the times I have responded too quickly and foolishly in anger.
Please teach me to emulate You and be quick to listen, slow to speak and even slower to get angry.
It is in Your wise strong name I humbly, meekly ask this important request. Amen
May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today. Joseph a son of Jehovah
