Everyone has a hot button. Who is pushing yours? While you probably can’t control that person, you can control how you react to them.
If you cannot control your anger, you are as helpless as a city without walls, open to attack. Proverbs 25:28 GNT
A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted. Proverbs 12:16 NLT
You don’t have to attend every argument you’re invited to. Three things you cannot recover: a word after it is said, the moment after it is missed, and time after it is gone. Focus helps us get past the button pushers. Think before you speak. “And do everything with love.” (1 Corinthians 16:14 NLT)
