Let’s say a kid at school pushes you by accident causing you to fall and drop your binder. It springs open and all your stuff goes flying. The kid, who didn’t really mean to push you, starts laughing because your fall was pretty hilarious. But you don’t think it’s funny. You want to push that kid back. You want to yell some insults. We’ve all been tempted to hurt someone when something makes us angry. But self-control requires us to stop and think before we act. We can ask ourselves, “What’s the best response?” The book of Proverbs can help us figure out what to do.
