Today’s Manna

Daily Reading for Thursday, May 25, 2023
Scripture: Proverbs 29:20
"Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him."

"When you feel an angry spirit arising, take firm hold of Jesus Christ by faith. Utter no word. Danger lies in the utterance of a single word when you are angry, for a volley of passionate utterances will follow. . . . The man who gives way to folly in speaking passionate words, bears false witness; for he is never just. He exaggerates every defect he thinks he sees; he is too blind and unreasonable to be convinced of his madness. He transgresses the commandments of God, and his imagination is perverted by the inspiration of Satan. He knows not what he is doing. Blind and deaf, he permits Satan to take the helm and guide him wherever he pleases. The door is then thrown open to malice, to envy, and to evil surmisings, and the poor victim is borne helplessly on. . . . But there is hope while the hours of probation linger, through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ."1
