Anger rests in the bosom of fools.
It is one of Satan’s finest tools.
For you to get mad and lose control—
This is one of his favorite goals.
Be aware of your foe and observe
The things he does to work on your nerves.
Be careful not make a big scene,
Get upset, and says things you don’t mean.
Attempt to find a more peaceful route
Before you let bitter words slip out.
Deny the devil satisfaction;
Take the time to think about your actions.
Fail to be rash and lash out in haste;
Swift conflict will leave a sour taste.
Petty arguments decline to chase;
To the adversary, give no place.
When the serpent’s at work, walk away;
It will just be trouble if you stay.
Don’t allow the enemy to trick you;
He wants to cause your temper to brew.
Avoid joining in pointless bantam;
Don’t so easily have a tantrum.
A man’s anger discretion defers.
This is the attitude God prefers.
