Hot temper.

“Pay the penalty” implies legal trouble. Hot-tempered people find themselves dealing with the law and need bailing out. The Proverb warns if you help anger-controlled individuals out of their woes, you will have to do it repeatedly.

Explosive tempers seem to have short fuses, but a lot of times, the ticking time bomb smoldered before going off. Learning to deal with the smoldering embers and not allow them to gather into a flame helps control the powerful emotion.

On the other hand, some people do have short fuses and explode quickly. Either way, the damage caused by the explosion can cause extensive damage to them and anyone in their range.

Start with prayer, tread lightly, and don’t enable the behavior. We can’t control someone else’s temper; only they can. And hot-tempered people must want to own it and desire to change, seeking the necessary help.

Anger destroys, but God can do miracles with a heart turned to Him.

Lord, help us deal with anger, whether ours or another’s. Soften our hearts and give us the tools to confront the powerful emotion and not let it control us. Give us victory over the fear behind the sentiment. IJNIP. Amen
