A fool’s wrath is known at once, But a prudent man covers shame (Proverbs 12:16, NKJV). The wrath of a person can be as unbecoming as a submarine having a screen hatch! Just as surely as the one will sink, the other will also die. Man’s anger can be controlled; it may take a good deal of effort, but success can be had. On the other hand, the prudent man knows just how to respond to an unseemly situation. He is not interested in exposing shame toward himself or others, but he is interested in helping the foolish man become prudent.
