It is said that a woman once approached the great preacher, Billy Sunday, after one of his meetings who was well known for her bad temper.
She sought to defend her actions by saying: “But Mr. Sunday, although I blow up over the least little thing, it’s all over in a minute.”
The evangelist looked her straight in the eye and said, “So is a shotgun blast! It’s over in seconds, too, but look at the terrible damage it can do.”
Ecc 7:9 (GW): "Don't be quick to get angry, because anger is typical of fools."
"Do not say, 'I cannot help having a bad temper.' Friend, you must help it. Pray to God to help you overcome it at once, for either you must kill it, or it will kill you. You cannot carry a bad temper into heaven." - Charles Spurgeon.
