Wisdom from Proverbs 14:29

He who is slow to wrath has great understanding, but he who is impulsive exalts folly. (Proverbs 14:29)

Being slow to wrath allows us time to reflect on a given situation. When we reflect on a situation before we act, we may see aspects that aren’t readily apparent on a cursory look. In addition, in situations that we allow ourselves to become angry, other men and women are often involved. Therefore, being slow to wrath may allow us time to evaluate the credibility and intentions of the individuals we are angry with.

Wrath implies a level of emotion, and felling above simple anger. It often precedes or implies some type of retribution. As Christians, we should be careful about becoming wrathful. Specifically, God has declared that vengeance is his (Romans 12:19).

If we have thought through a situation, and we feel justified in exercising our wrath, then we should pray to Jesus before acting on our wrath. For as Christians, we know that Jesus expects us to forgive those who offend us. Yet this is sometimes easier said than done.

Shear experience teaches men and women, that impulsive actions are often not the best actions. If you reflect over your life experiences, you may remember an incident where acting to quickly without forethought resulted in actions that you later regretted.

Again, after you pray about the situation, then ask yourself “Should I indeed exercise my wrath?” For in the end, Jesus will judge the other person or persons for their actions against you, which if you think is against him, Jesus Christ. As well, Jesus will judge you for your response to their actions.
