Thought For The Day – Are You A Fool

Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests in the bosom of fools. Ecclesiastes 7:9 NKJV

I know today’s thought for the day seems a little harsh but according to this scripture if you are always quick to get angry, it labels you with fools. The reason for this is that anyone who is quick tempered does not practice or exercise self control. Self control is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit Galatians 5 verse 22-23. The next time someone or something tries to make you angry ask yourself, ‘am I a fool?” What I discovered is that most of the things we get angry about especially, with other people can just as easily be worked out by talking it through. 

Also remember that anger is a considered to be part of the works of the flesh and brings with it other works of flesh that cause chaos, mayhem and destruction. Anger really only hurts you in more ways than you can imagine. Practice more self control because even getting angry is a choice. May God help us all through the Holy Spirit to excise more self control  in our daily lives in Jesus name, Amen. These are Julien’s thought and what’s on his mind.
