When Our Anger, Rather than the Holy Spirit Rules Us

When our anger, rather than the Holy Spirit, rules us, we become the kind of quick-tempered, hotheaded fool the Bibles warns against in the book of Proverbs; “hey quick-tempered man tax foolishly. Period. He who is slow to wrath has great understanding, but he who is impulsive exalts folly.” Conversely, “the discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a transgression. ”

– Driscoll, Mark; Who Do You Think You Are? Finding Your True Identity in ChristThomas Nelson Publishers, Nashville, copyright 2013; Page 161
