“A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
My son, Michael, 8, chose this verse to type this morning. When I asked why, he said, “I just need more self-control.”
Don’t we all? One of the challenges we all face is dealing with anger, our own, and others’. This verse is about dealing with others’ anger. I asked Michael to help me think about some things that could help.
Here are some of his suggestions:
1. Try not to say mean things to other people.
2. If someone says something mean to you, don’t get mad at them.
3. You can watch the Bible Man video about anger called “Conquering the Wrath of Rage.”
4. If something breaks that you like, don’t get mad if it gets broken.
Out of the mouths of babes….
Just something to think about….
