James 1:19-25 (Quick to Listen, Slow to Speak, and Slow to Get Angry)

Now I know I said I wouldn't mix and mingle the topics on my blog, but I had to share these bible verses.  They apply to any person whether you are Christian or have any other belief system. 

James 1:19-25

King James Version (KJV)
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

I needed to be reminded of this as I just had a disagreement with someone and didn't follow the rules.  I was all quick to get angry LOL.  However, today, I'm wishing I hadn't of "popped" off so quickly.  We quick-tempered people have to restrain ourselves sometimes.  Who wants to have unnecessary awkward moments the next day when the situation wasn't even a big deal.  Therefore, to prevent such situations I need to work on my personal actions and be less reactive... somebody dial down the activation energy up in here LOL.   

So, now that everything is all awkward, do I apologize? LOL
