My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
I've been very tired the last week or so. When I'm tired I tend to have angry outbursts with the kids. (Being tired is not an excuse! Especially when I know that fatigue has this effect on me). I'm going to be repeating these verses often . . . especially in the midst of their naughtiness!
