Proverbs of a 39 yr old man

Get rid of a conceited person, and then there will be no more arguments, quarreling, or name-calling. A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends. People who cause trouble by their evil words do not deserve a welcome. Such people may lie or gossip. Or they may insult other people. We should send away these evil people. The troubles will end when they leave. And perhaps our actions will warn them that their behavior was evil. Fire goes out without wood, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops. Don't hold grudges. On the other hand, it's wrong not to correct someone who needs correcting. If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back. But if you are unsuccessful, take one or two others with you and go back again, so that everything you say may be confirmed by two or three witnesses. If the person still refuses to listen, take your case to the church. Then if he or she won’t accept the church’s decision, treat that person as a pagan or a corrupt tax collector.

Study Prov. 16:27

Amen. Anger does not produce the righteousness of God. We need his peace and joy. A way of escape from temptation.

Anger ate me up! Like a poison in my blood. God has to show me an escape. And i have to take it, consistently and try to avoid the situation again if possible.
