Anger

 I came across these statements on anger  in a book entitled "Wit and Wisdom".  

                                   

    He is a fool who cannot be angry; but he is a wise man who will not.

    Whenever you are angry, be assured that it is not only a present evil, but that you have increased a habit.        Epictetus

    Keep cool; anger is not an argument.     Daniel Webster

   The greatest remedy for anger is delay.       Seneca

   When a man is wrong and wont admit it, he always gets angry.

   I was angry with my friend,I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe. I told it not, my wrath did grow.       William Blake

What is the Biblical perspective on anger? The one that comes to my mind is

Ephesians 4:26  “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, "

So do not let your anger fester, in any way you can, let it go. The best is of course be slow to anger.

James 1:19  

" My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, "

God has described himself as "slow to anger".

Exodus 34:6 

" And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, "

以 弗 所 書 4:26   26 生 氣 卻 不 要 犯 罪 ; 不 可 含 怒 到 日 落 ,

雅 各 書 1:19  

19 我 親 愛 的 弟 兄 們 , 這 是 你 們 所 知 道 的 , 但 你 們 各 人 要 快 快 的 聽 , 慢 慢 的 說 , 慢 慢 的 動 怒 ,

出 埃 及 記 34:6 

6 耶 和 華 在 他 面 前 宣 告 說 : 耶 和 華 , 耶 和 華 , 是 有 憐 憫 有 恩 典 的 神 , 不 輕 易 發 怒 , 並 有 豐 盛 的 慈 愛 和 誠 實 ,
