  5. A Hot temper never gets you anywhere. For God states in His word be patient! ( He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly Proverbs 14:17). (A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife Proverbs 15:19). A hot tempered person will always live in the dark and never be at peace. God says ( A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger ( Proverbs 15:1). So we have to be mindful of our approach. ( Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosoms of fools , Ecclesiastes 7:9). God does not want us to be angry nor be vengeful, He loves us and wants us to be at peace. We must trust and belive In God, Have Faith and know that He is God and will give us peace and patience along with wisdom. Praise Him!!! For He is Good!!!!

  6. I love this scripture, this is so powerful. A hot tempered person starts arguments. A calm person brings patience. When you have patience it will bring you peace.
