• ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

_Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools_.–ECCLES. vii. 9.
Let not the sun go down upon your wrath–EPH. iv. 26.

Quench thou the fires of hate and strife, The wasting fever of the heart; From perils guard our feeble life, And to our souls Thy peace impart.
J. H. NEWMAN, Tr. from Latin.
When thou art offended or annoyed by others, suffer not thy thoughts to dwell thereon, or on anything relating to them. For example, “that they ought not so to have treated thee; who they are, or whom they think themselves to be;” or the like; for all this is fuel and kindling of wrath, anger, and hatred.
L. SCUPOLI.
Struggle diligently against your impatience, and strive to be amiable and gentle, in season and out of season, towards every one, however much they may vex and annoy you, and be sure God will bless your efforts.
ST. FRANCIS DE SALES.
