So how do you respond to someone that is quick-tempered, easily irritated, angry, emotionally unselfcontrolled, etc? Both in the church and outside of it. To be honest, there are many people in my life who seem to display these characteristics on a regular basis. My normal response is grace, mercy, gentleness, and love. But is there something I can say or do that will help change someone (other than prayer) at that moment when they are sinning? Thanks!
