    TOO QUICKLY ANNOYED?

    Pr 12:16 A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

    Take note of how quickly and in what manner you respond to an insult.

    Jas 1:19 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry

    Furthermore:

    Pr 29:11 A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.
    Pr 25:28 Whoever has no rule over his own spirit Is like a city broken down, without walls.

    In fact only a fool always expresses how they feel. The righteous should be dispassionate to a degree. In particular being slow to anger requires an exercise of one's self-control. A person lacking in self-control has his defenses broken down and as such is open to the enemy's attack.

    Matthew 5:38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. Exodus 21:24; Leviticus 24:20; Deuteronomy 19:21 39 But I tell you, don’t resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 If anyone sues you to take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. 41 Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks you, and don’t turn away him who desires to borrow from you.

    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor Leviticus 19:18 and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 47 If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same?48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

    Matthew 5:5 Blessed are those who are gentle. They will inherit the earth.
