1. Do Not Get Angry
When you find yourself in a situation where your temper is rising remind yourself of anger management Bible verses like the following as you take deep breaths to calm yourself down:
Do not be angry and turn away from rage. (Psalm 37:8)

Whoever does not control his own spirit is like a broken down city without walls. (Proverbs 25:28)

We can see a good example of this when David was very angry because of what Nabal had done to him and he was going to kill all the men in his homestead because Nabal's wife Abigail went to see David and said to him, "Please forgive this trespass for God will certainly prepare for you an enduring house because you fight the battles of the Lord... And it shall come to pass that when God has done all the good that He has spoken concerning you that there will be no grief to you or offense because you have shed blood without cause or avenged yourself." (1 Samuel 25:28-31)
A gentle answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger Proverbs 15:1-2
