Stay Away From Him
| There are those
people from whom you do better not to associate. They can only lead you in
a bad direction. Proverbs 22:24,25, "Make no friendship with an angry
man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go; lest thou learn his ways,
and get a snare to thy soul." People often say and do things when
angry that are really, really bad. If we are not careful we can adopt
their ways and that will only be a detriment to us.
Anger itself is not necessarily evil. Paul admonished, "Be ye angry and sin not" (Ephesians 4:28). We can be angry without doing wrong. But it is always a dangerous state of mind. To make friendships with angry and furious people is especially dangerous because we may fall under their influence that can only lead to trouble for us. So stay away from that person who cannot control his temper. You could well become the target of his undisciplined wrath as well as others. You could become like him.
