Proverbs 14:17, 29; 15:1, 18; 19:11, 19; 24:29
What makes you angry? Is “makes” the right word – as if you had no choice? Maybe there is another way to look at it. Wisdom says that if we pause (maybe count to 10) to look at what is underneath our anger, we will find something we love. Anger tells us what we love. To be healed of toxic anger is to make sure we love the right things.
