Ted was a bank president who was becoming irritated with the arrogant behavior of his loan officer. Rather than address his subordinate’s frequent issues, Ted avoided conflict by giving the loan officer a great review and a raise!
Then one day the loan officer was treating one of Ted’s customers with disrespect. Ted lost control. He exploded with anger in the bank lobby and fired this loan officer, for all to see.
That burst of anger resulted in a lawsuit that cost the bank hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Proverbs 19:19 teaches, “A man of great anger will bear the penalty, for if you rescue him, you will only have to do it again.”
Ted’s response was inappropriate and costly. A wise man learns to control his anger.
