“Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.” (Ecclesiastes 7:9)
Today’s Morsel: One of the things that I learned at an early age living on the farm was to not disturb a wasp nest when there are hundreds of them on it. Some of them serve as guards. And when you anger them, look out, as they have no problem defending themselves and the others in that nest. There seems to be a lot of anger arising in the world today. I know that much of it has always been around ever since Satan was kicked out of heaven. But now it’s starting to surface its ugly head in the church. Many scriptures caution us to not allow it to get into our hearts. Anger, like castor oil, is not an easy dose of medicine to swallow. It’s bitter and nasty. And if you do not control it, it will destroy you or cause you to hurt someone else. Solomon states, "Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools." If you allow anger to get into your heart, it can destroy you. Be careful.
Sing: Jesus keep me near the cross, there a precious fountain; free to all a healing stream, Flows from Calvary’s mountain.
Thought For Today: Anger is a stone thrown at a wasps nest.
