Mockers can get a whole town agitated, but the wise will calm anger. (Proverbs 29:8 NLT)
For “mockers” you could substitute UKIP, or indeed any organisation who likes to get people talking. You could even substitute the name of a popular TV show!
But what word or name would you use in place of “the wise”?
Who do you know who seems to have that uncanny knack of calming a disturbance?
Of course, you could argue that agitation does not necessarily lead to anger. But the evidence seems to be that anger follows agitation!
Are you wise?
Can you be the one to be an oasis of calm?
