Happy Hump Day, friends. And I am feeling the hump. So I’m praying for myself today from Proverbs 14:29 ESV
Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
The Believer’s Bible Commentary equates being “slow to anger” as one who is “patient under provocation”. “Understanding” = “great insight”. And a hasty tempered person is also “impulsive”. But the phrase “exalts folly” gave me the most food for thought. This angry individual isn’t just foolish, he or she promotes foolishness and “holds it up to public view”. In other words,
when we flair up quickly, we show everyone in viewing distance and ear shot that we lack good sense. Who wants to be THAT person?
Replace the pronouns with the appropriate ones for the person (or yourself) that you are praying for.
Praying for you in this. And don’t forget to share this on social media or with a friend who could benefit. It would mean so much to me. And if you don’t want to miss a Praying God’s Word Wednesday, subscribe over on the right hand side of this page.
