Control Your Anger
Control your anger or it will control you.
No emotion ignites quicker than anger. Yes, there is such a thing as love at first sight, but it’s rare. Happiness takes a while to unfold, and sadness seems to creep up on you. But anger is different animal. Someone says the wrong thing, or you see something that upsets you, and pow–the anger rises up like a volcano, erupting for all to see. And once it’s out there, it’s hard to put a cork on your anger.
The Bible instructs us to be slow to anger. It doesn’t say we shouldn’t get angry, because that would be like saying, “Don’t breathe.” We’re human. We get angry. But when we are thoughtful and patient, hearing others out before making our pronouncements, we are less likely to be foolish or destructive in our anger. Here’s another reason to manage our anger: God is pleased when you keep your anger under control.
Your anger can never make things right in God’s sight. James 1:20
