Ecclesiastes 7

7      Surely oppression maketh a wise man mad; and a gift destroyeth the heart.
Oppression, constant criticism or accusing...makes a man of God angry.  A gift, as a bribe destroys the heart. Remain true to your calling in God. Don't be turned away by people's bad words or their flattery leading you away from God's calling for you.

    Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Endure unto the end, be patient. Bragging means little. Trust the Lord and continue to serve him.
9     Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
Keep your gentle heart, you serve God and are to be like Jesus who dwells within.
