Temper's the one thing you can't get rid of, by losing it.

I heard a good whammy at Bible study at Providence Church last night: H.A.L.T.

The context was discussion of the following verses.
  • Proverbs 14:17 A man of quick temper acts foolishly, and a man of evil devices is hated.
  • Proverbs 14:29 Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
(cf. Prov 19:11 & James 1:19)

Practical issues of "how to" brought the following to light. (HT Vicky Sterling)

H.A.L.T. before acting. In other words, it's wise not to do anything when you're ...
  • H ... Hungry or Hurt
  • A ... Angry
  • L ... Lonely
  • T ... Tired
