Anger and calmness

Ecclesiastes 10

4 If the anger of the ruler rises against you, do not leave your place,
for calmness [1] will lay great offenses to rest.

I thought this was a very practical verse!


  1. It is all to easy to get angry, being calm is much harder, but more rewarding.

  2. I am for the most part a calm person... but lately as i get older and tired and have lots of little chickens(children) pecking at me... I tend yo be snappy. I don't like that. Need to fix it.

  3. It is amazing the effect calmness has around angry people. I work in sales and see a lot of insecurity and anger in customers. Calmness is the antidote. Happy Sunday!

  4. Happy Sunday NannyKim..
    I do like this quote, much to ponder on and very good advice. Thanks for stopping and sharing you heart with me today. I was blessed!!

  5. I'm thinking of the verse, "a soft answer turns away wrath."
