4-49 Application for Dec 6-7, 2014 :: Proverbs 16:32

===

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

===
First, consider the God of the Universe – the one who created everything – the all powerful and all wise Being. Do you want to be the kind of person who He calls ‘better’? You should. And that is the motivator in this verse.

“Better than what or who?” you might ask. Better than the mighty or “He who takes a city”

If so, if you want God to call you better, then choose the wise path: being slow to anger and controlling over your own spirit.

In other words, by God’s grace, don’t be quick to lose control of your temper, or your emotions. Keep yourself in check. Because we have it on good authority, this will be better long-term than being a person who rules over many people.
