Slow to Wrath

I can't think of any times when I reacted out of anger and didn't regret it later. On the other hand, the times when I've waited until my anger has passed to respond to something that upset me, it's been much easier to give a measured response and much more likely that all those involved will leave edified, even if we don't end up agreeing with one another.
When angry, take time to cool off, take time to listen, take time to think, and then respond.
