{Words to Ponder} Self-Control

When you will not fly into a passion people know you are

stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wish they hadn’t said afterward. There’s nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in–that’s stronger. It’s a good thing not to answer your enemies.”

Sara Crewe, A Little Princess

Don’t answer a fool in terms of his folly, or you will be

descending to his level; but answer a fool as his folly deserves, so that he won’t think he is wise.

—Proverbs 26:4-5

Anyone who thinks he is religiously observant but does not

control his tongue is deceiving himself, and his observance counts for nothing.

—James 1:26
