Love Is Not Easily Angered

Love is not easily angered…

– 1 Corinthians 13:5 (NIV)

 

The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.

– Psalm 103:8 (NLT)

 

Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.

– Thomas a Kempis

 

Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.

– James 1:20 (NLT)

 

There is nothing that so much gratifies an ill tongue as when it finds an angry heart.

– Thomas Fuller

 

Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.

– Proverbs 29:11 (NLT)

 

Anger itself is not wrong. All emotions are created by God – It’s just that sin taints emotions. Sort of like fruit that goes bad. Worry is concern gone bad. Fury is anger gone bad.

– Jennifer Smith

 

Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs.

– Proverbs 19:11 (NLT)
