Slow to Anger

Proverbs 19:11 The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, And his glory is to overlook a transgression.

This text is one those that is easier to look at than live. There are a number of things to get angry about and perhaps have a good reason. The kids just broke your favorite keepsake or a person cut you off in traffic or any of a number of myriad of events that just get under your skin. Every day there is something that seems to cause you to be angry.
Developing a genuine and increasing love for people and for God will help us to curtail our anger towards others.

"And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”" (1 Peter 4:8, NKJV)
