There is great wisdom in holding our tongue, especially when our temper is on the rise. See some of us just need to keep our mouths closed because opening them would prove us to be the f**l that everyone knows that we are. That’s what is all about.
Proverbs 17:28 ESV
Even a f**l who keeps silent is considered wise;

when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.
But in relationships like with your mom or dad, maybe a boyfriend or girlfriend you know from experience just how true these verses are. Uncontrollable anger leads to uncontrollable speech.
Look pop-psychologists will tell you that you cannot control your anger because it is an emotion - in fact, even some biblical scholars (if you can call them that) will tell you this. But hear what Douglas Moo says in response:

Emotions are the product of the entire person; and, by God’s grace and the work of the Spirit, the person can be transformed so as to bring emotions in line with God’s word and will.

All across the bible we are commanded to control or exercise emotions. Do not covet. Delight in the Lord. Be slow to anger. So what we see in this passage again is God commanding our entire life, including our emotions.
For you in here that have quick tempers - I am including myself in this one - holding your tongue is of tremendous value. When your blood boils and you want to verbally assault someone. You want to rip them to shreds with your words - we must look to the wisdom of Christ and heed this command to be slow to speak and slow to anger.
Application: here is where gossip seems to dominate girl culture. Girls you refuse to be listeners of God’s word and rather you speak hastily, not thinking of the horror of your sin or the damage that it will cause in the lives of the people you speak of. And you do this in groups and you feed of each other’s sinful energy and hate and your blood gets pumping and anger takes root. I’ve seen this played out in the life of many a teen girl.
Proverbs 17:28 ESV
Even a f**l who keeps silent is considered wise;

when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.
For the boys shrugging off this wisdom from Christ is where we do great harm to our name. Listen to :
Proverbs 22:1 ESV
A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,

and favor is better than silver or gold.
Coach Dave and Robot Fries. I didn’t want to listen, I was angry that they were punishing me for speaking back, so I said I don’t want to listen and do what y’all say because I don’t want to become your robot who would have to then in turn eat robot fries.
Application: That day I demonstrated the f**lish and simple 16 year old that I was. I was not quick to listen, I was not slow to speak and I was not slow to anger. In my mind I thought I was smooth as a babies bottom, but in reality I showed all the coaches how big of an dumb person I was and my name in their opinion was ruined for many years. I look back on that moment and wish that I would have been a ready listener. I wish that I would have been a slow commentator. I wish that I would have been further down the road in my Christ-likeness.
Look pop-pyschologists will tell you that you cannot control your anger because it is an emotion - in fact, even some biblical scholars (if you can call them that) will tell you this. But hear what Douglas Moo says in response:
The Pillar New Testament Commentary: The Letter of James A. Hasty Speech and Anger Do Not Please God (1:19–20)
Emotions are the product of the entire person; and, by God’s grace and the work of the Spirit, the person can be transformed so as to bring emotions in line with God’s word and will.



All across the bible we are commanded to control or exercise emotions. Do not covet. Delight in the Lord. Be slow to anger. So what we see in this passage again is God commanding our entire life, including our emotions.
We’ve all said things we’ve regretted. We all have. We are all sinners in need of a savior. We all have scars from sin and our only hope is Christ. He is our only refuge from the storm of judgment that awaits sinners.
But for those in Christ we must listen to God through His Word, we must rely on His Holy Spirit that lives within us and be teachable and we must be slow to speak and slow to anger and here is the reason James gives us, lets read it all:
James 1:19–20 ESV
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
3. Anger Generally Never Produces Authentic Christlikeness
Thinking on our series title - human anger does not produce authentic Christian living. In my flesh, in human anger I’ve never produced what God desires of me.


. Uncontrolled anger leads to uncontrolled speech. How often do we find ourselves regretting words spoken “in the heat of the moment”!
