Do you have spiritual discretion brewing or anger left to simmer?

The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression. (Proverbs 19:11 KJV)

Anger held within us is like forming a festering time bomb inside of us.  On the other hand anger that is purposely defused or passed over is like removing the wick or fuse rendering it inoperable; not allowing the anger to boil over and spill into our lives ...

Are you serving while suffering for Christ?

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (2 Timothy 3:12 KJV)

The stone was rolled away He is risen!
