Prescription for anger:
Anger is a huge problem in America….even in the Church….I beleive it is one of the greatest problems in America, it is tearing us apart..Clearly we must avoid verbal and physical violence, but anger can lead to other sins just as deadly. A line exists that we must not cross.
Eph 4:26 exhorts us to control our anger so we do not sin.While anger itself is not sinful, it can quickly lead to this. A line exists that we must not cross. How do we know when we have crossed it? When you see things in your life like…..
Strife, Proverbs 29:22 says “an angry man stirs up strife” Strife can take many forms, but it always pits one person against another, even if things don’t become loud or violent.
Bitterness, Psalm 30:5 says God’s “anger is but for a moment,” and Eph 4:26 warns us against staying angry overnight.
Isolation, Nursing anger leads people to avoid each other and eventually to cut off their relationship altogether. Proverbs 18:1 warns, “He who separates himself seeks his own desire, he quarrels against all sound wisdom.”
Retaliation, Romans 12:19 says”Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, :Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord,”
Remember, “The anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God” James 1:230.
When you find yourself crossing the line and becoming angry beyond measure, submit yourself to God and “do not give the devil an opportunity” Eph 4:27.
PS: Be Godly wise in what you post on Facebook. I had an anger problem in my life until God got a hold of me! Anger kills or damages many hearts and souls.
