An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Anger Management

(Pro 22:24 KJV)  Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:

My question for the day is, “What do you do when you are forced into regular contact with the kind of person you are to avoid?”  We have all been around people with short fuses.  It happens at work.  It happens if you were drafted into the army like I was.  It happens at school.  I guess it can happen in family.  Here we are told to distance ourselves or terminate the relationship.  How do you do that with your drill sergeant?

Sometimes we have control, or at least options.  At work you might be able to quit or transfer.  In college you might have no other option than that teacher.  Here is where we need to read the rest of Proverbs and look for clues.  Obvious to me is to prepare each day with a big dose of praise and thanksgiving.  Generously season with the word.  Then go forth in trust.  

So?  I am sure there are many other protections available.  Keep looking.  What you missed yesterday may pop up again and be a life saver today.
