The Cornered Human Being

What works for you in handling an angry associate or roommate? What does [Proverbs chapter 22] suggest [in verse{s} 24 {and 25}] “Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared (NIV).”] (Serendipity Bible 10th Edition, page 916).

First I would like to point out that a fundamental concern of the Bible is human freedom.  The Bible deals with the many ways we can become ensnared.  A chronic bias for anger is certainly one of them. The Proverbs warning not to make friends with volcanic hotheads is the only way I have found to deal with extremely volatile personalities.  I certainly lack even a smidgen of capacity to deal with the drunk and the short-fused–both desperately striving to avoid worthlessness.
