Note the tangible characteristics of wise people: They are slow to talk. They are quick to listen. They are always thinking. They evaluate every message. Their response is measured and thoughtful. They are wordsmiths; they do not waste words. They do not talk to be heard. They do not speak to impress. They use words when absolutely necessary. They use words to reveal knowledge. They use words to elevate understanding. Their primary goal is to be understood. Their secondary goal is to share information.
And a man under pressure is what he is when he's under pressure. His real to--true characteristics will show when he's under pressure. Get him all riled, stirred up, then you'll see the real man come out. If he's got temper, it'll show itself. If he's meek and gentle, it'll show itself. Put him under pressure once. And God puts all His children under tests to see whether there's any flaws in them.
