Good Words for Today: February 9

“Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered” (Proverbs 22:24). You don’t have to answer every angry email or every cantankerous Facebook comment. Wisdom knows when to walk away. We used to sing, “It only takes a spark to get a fire going,” but that song was about God’s love. There is enough dry tinder in all of us that it only takes a few sparks from an angry person to set us ablaze. Better to walk away from an argument than to wish you had.
