The answer to being gullible, hot-tempered, and jealous

Its all in Proverbs 14. I was having some issues with jealousy, being hot-tempered...and an extra side issue of gullibility... But like I said, its all in Proverbs 14. I deviated from the Matthew Chapters that I was following and was thirsting for some wise advice and truly presto, God speaks.

So how do I keep from being so gullible? Simple.
A simple man believes anything,
but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.

What He told me? Don't be lazy now... THINK. Before believing anything, THINK.

And He didn't just stop there...made me realize something more than that that I had to really change to set me free from some of my jelly issues...It was making me hot-tempered and: v16 and 17

A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil,
but a fool is hotheaded and reckless.

A quick-tempered man does foolish things,
and a crafty man is hated.

Only then did I realize that: v30
A heart at peace gives life to the body,
but envy rots the bones.

Yes, peace... I wanted that, wanted that so much. And its so simple... i just have to choose to be the wiser.

Truly, v5
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
