Text: Proverbs 15.18

While there are moments when it’s appropriate to show intense anger, these moments are usually few and far between. The problem is, many of us live angry. We may not show it all the time, but we’re always bubbling, ready to blow like a volcano with pressure always building. It only takes the slightest poke to release the full vent of our anger. This can be very dangerous for the people who live with and around us.

Patience is the ability to graciously slow down and meet someone at their pace. When you feel your temperature rising because of the challenges surrounding you, allow yourself the time and space to slow down.

Today, take a few minutes to memorize Proverbs 15.18 and call it to mind when you sense your volcano starting to boil.
