How To Slow Down My Temper

20Do you see a man who speaks in haste? There is more hope for a fool than for him. 21…. 22An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins. 23A man’s pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor. Proverbs 29:20-23

17So I … insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18... 19 20You… did not come to know Christ that way. 21 22You were taught…. 23to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. 25Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27and do not give the devil a foothold. Eph 4:17-27


To Slow Down My Temper I Must Choose To Think About:

·         God Providing His [Help]

16I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. Isaiah 42:16


29A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly. 30A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. Proverbs 14:29-30

8The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride. 9Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools. Ecclesiastes 7:8-9

·         Humbly Accepting the [WORD OF GOD]

19My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. 21Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. James 1:19-21

·         Relying On the [HOLY SPIRIT]

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25
