Episode 434


Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.

Ecclesiastes 7:9


I read this verse, and the first thing that came to mind was one of my favorite slogans ever. Don’t Get Man, Get Glad!


Do you remember that?


Every time anger would stir inside, and those words would pop into my head—pretty prophetic words for a cling wrap commercial.


But they were truly on to us. We can let the simplest things upset us. Things are as simple as cling wrap not doing its job. But deeper than that, we get upset when we feel others aren’t doing their job correctly, whether that be their role in the house, in the workforce, in your school project.


Truly when others let us down, I know we can quickly become angry. But this verse was written by the wisest man to ever walk. Let us not get easily provoked, for anger reads in the lap of fools.


It would be foolish of us to think that anger can help further our communication or even the task ahead of us.


Let’s practice Grace the next time someone upsets us.



Lord, give us the ability to extend Grace. Show us where we may let anger build up. Open our eyes to when we snap or hold onto hurtful emotions. We know it’s foolish for everyone in the situation. We love you so much, and truly we want to be more like you each day. We pray this is your son’s holy name, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!


We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
