Patience and forgiveness, a mark of maturity 9.30.11

Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense. Proverbs 19:11

A secure, wise man is slow to anger and has a life marked with forgiveness of wrongs. Patience and mastery of anger is a mark of maturity…showing that a man is of a calm peaceful heart. Holding grudges bring nothing positive…instead quickly forgive and move on. For holding a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die…for grudges kill only the one that harbors them. Action. My sons, Desire to be a patient man who is slow to anger, realizing that outbursts give evidence of immaturity of character.
