A Wrathful Man Stirs Up Strife

Proverbs 15:18  

A wrathful man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger allays contention.

Once again, wise King Solomon points out the dangers of anger and contention. Being slow to anger can prevent a multitude of problems. This is demonstrated in many ways, but can be especially seen in our words (see Proverbs 15:1, for example).
