The Danger of Anger

Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry–but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge. And don’t stay angry. Don’t go to bed angry. Don’t give the Devil that kind of foothold in your life. Ephesians 4:26–27 MSG

In Other Words
Do not allow anger to cause you to sin, or give you an excuse to sin. Vent your anger. Don’t harbor it. Don’t become obsessed with it. A life driven by anger is an open invitation to the devil.

✓ Responsibility for one’s actions doesn’t end where temper begins
