Text of the Day







He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty;

and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city—

Prov. 16:32.


While anger, in the nature of hatred, malice, strife, envy, should be put away by all who are seeking to be copies of God’s dear Son, anger in the sense of righteous indignation against wrong-doing, sin in its various forms, is proper; and although it should be used with great moderation, backed by love, there are circumstances in which it would be wrong not to have righteous anger and use it.
