Anger, Part 2
Do not be quick to anger.
"Know this, my brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness that God requires." - James 1:19-20
Man's anger is sinful, because it is for the wrong reasons.
The man who is Slow to anger has "Great understanding"
"Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly." - Proverbs 14:29
According to "Websters New World Dictionary" the word "Understanding" means:"The power to think and learn; intelligence." The "Bible" calls a man who is slow to anger, intelligent. We often get angry because our pride has been hurt, and pride is a huge obstacle for someone who wants to gain knowledge and understanding. Because we often don't want to admit that we are ignorant about some things, we don't learn anything. Someone who is quick to anger is not patient, and it takes a lot of patience to gain understanding.
