Within Our Control – Proverbs 16:32

Do you handle your anger well?

“Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.” Proverbs 16:32 ESV

I often need to remember that I must be slow to anger. This verse is one that’s pointed at me. When we’re quick to get angry, we shut others out. When we’re slow to anger, we can be quicker to share. We can ship more grace and we can integrate our faith and work when we are slow to anger. 

If we can rule our spirit, we’re able to be a blessing to the people around us. Can you slow down and remember your calling? You’re called to help others move one notch closer to Jesus. Step into that calling. When we lose our temper, we shut off God and we become gods to ourselves. Why not stay connected to God and watch him work? 

Maybe you need to join a community of people who are working on these very things. We want to be used by God. He puts us to work as marketplace ministers, people who serve others so they might get to know Jesus. We have an online community called Follower of One and you can join for free. Check it out at https://community.followerofone.org and you’ll see what I mean!
