Harsh Words

The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself; to be conquered by yourself is of all things most shameful and vile.  ~Plato

Proverbs 15:1
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Ephesians 4:26
“In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.

There are a lot of people who sinks through quicksands of life by letting their fears , hatreds and anger conquer them. The bible says, a great offense to hard situations is to be composed. (Ecc. 10:4) It allays great strength to overcome, subdue and gain victory over your madness and anger. No matter how tempting to shout your voice to let other people know how resentful you are, it is still best to handle your words with care. Most of the time, it is better to leave angry words unspoken than to mend a heart those words would be broken. It is an asset to be a controlled man. Romans 8:16b says, the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.
