Proverbs 14:29 says, A patient person is very smart. A quick-tempered person makes stupid mistakes. These two statements are so true. I know from experience that when I have been impatient or quick-tempered that I have done and said things that have got me in trouble, or that I have regretted later. I'm more likely to say something harsh or hurtful, break something, make a mistake, etc. When I feel myself getting frazzled, I take a couple of deep breaths and ask God to help me. This usually helps me to return to a more patient and wise state. When you are patient, you make time to think more carefully about your actions and words.
