A controlled mind

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." (NIV) Proverbs 15:1

Anger and wrath are one of the world’s most noticeable problems. We see it in the home, in the workplace and on the highways when we drive. Some people just really don't need to be out driving the highways for anger and how it causes them to react.

The fact that there is such stress in conducting our lives; making financial decisions that may greatly squeeze our resources or cause us to lose them altogether, can discount the family structure. Even directing the family core to do those things needful may develop into anger on the part of family members.

The Bible can help one cope with anger and wrath caused by stress or other means. Let us look at some of the ways we can be helped. The Bible says that a soft answer turns away wrath (Prov. 15:1). This helps me to know that if I am patient with an answer and will speak softly the hearer is less likely to become angry, even if the problem has escalated. This has worked in directing children at school by teachers who have encountered a similar problem.

I believe the Bible gives a viable answer to the problem with a usable solution. It even goes on to say that, he that is slow to anger appeases strife (Proverbs 15:18). A quick-tempered person stirs up the confrontation, while a controlled tongue and heart calm the soul. Let us always keep this in mind to cope with anger and stress. God bless you!
