“For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one” (Job 5:2).
Today’s Morsel: I keep shaking my head trying to find out why there are so many educated fools. So many seem to be angry about everything. They are angry with the president. Angry with media. Angry because their parking spot is taken. Angry because parents ground them. Angry because they didn’t get a good grade. Angry because someone rejected what they said. Angry because they didn’t get their way. Angry because they didn’t make the team. This is all vanity of vanity, and foolishness of foolishness. They fail to heed the songwriter's advice when he wrote, “You can’t always get what you want.” Solomon said that anger killeth the foolish man. He stated, “Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools” (Ecclesiastes 7:9). And his father David said, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…” (Psalms 14:1). I think that it’s time that schools and churches get back to the basic teaching of character.
Sing: Falling in love with Jesus, falling in love with Jesus, falling in love with Jesus, is the best things I've ever, ever done.
Thought For Today: Don’t let anger destroy you.
