The wrong kind of passion can be a dangerous thing. Too often people are ruled by strong emotions, thoughts that cannot be checked, and actions that cannot be controlled. If that’s the case, then you are putting your life and well-being in jeopardy. Peace of mind, tranquility of soul, and serenity of heart become the recipe for a long, happy life.

31 Whoever oppresses the poor insults his Maker,
    but anyone who is gracious to the needy honors Him.
32 The wicked are waylaid by their evil actions,
    but the right-living find hope’s sanctuary even in their death.[a]
33 Wisdom rests in the heart of one with insight
    and can even be experienced by fools.
