According to the NASB the “fool” (3684) “loses” (uttereth KJV) (3318) his “temper” (mind KJV) (7307). Don’t get a picture of someone walking around saying, “I lost my temper, has anyone seen it?” It is much more deliberate than that. The KJV puts it much better. The literal reading would be “sends forth all his spirit.”
Have you heard it said, “If it feels good, do it.” Fool talk. “You only go round once in life. Grab for all the gusto.” Fool talk. “Follow your heart.” Fool talk.
(Galatians 5:22-23 KJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.Now that is the beginning of wise talk.
So? Self control is a part of walking with Jesus. The Holy Spirit is there to help but he does not have a supply of corks specially fitted for your mouth. Do your part.
