Memorable Scripture: Anger

Ephesians 4:26-27
“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.

Anger is a base emotion.
You feel it for many reasons that I won’t get into.
What is important is your control of your own anger.
I remember someone telling me when I am angry to count to ten.
Instead I would get up and walk away.
Having matured somewhat, I strive to let it become water on a ducks back and just slide off.
So many cannot and will not control anger and it leads to other sins, including murder.
You are in control of your anger; to let it run rampant or to stop it dead in its tracks.
The warning is “do not let the sun go down on your wrath.”
That does not mean if you get angry in the morning you have all day to deal with it.
It actually shows an urgency to deal with anger.
Allowing anger to fester is giving a pathway to the devil in your life.
As a believer you are told to let all…anger… be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Eph 4:31-32
Of course, others should take responsibility for stirring up anger in others.
Prov 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Be cautious to not stir up anger or become angry.
