Be ye angry, and sin not
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: neither give place to the devil. (Ephesians Ch.4 verses 25-27).
God’s Word tells us to be “slow to wrath.” Proverbs Ch.14 verse 29 tells us He who is slow to wrath has great understanding, and James Ch.1 verse 19b says, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. There’s nothing that will do more damage to our relationships than unwanted, unwarranted anger.
If you are given to anger, the Bible says you are foolish. Ecclesiastes Ch. 7 verse 9 says, Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. Uncontrolled anger is like throwing a rock into an active hornet nest, then daring them to attack you.
Do you have anger in your life? If so, confess it to the Lord. Don’t let Satan get a stronghold in your thoughts. If you get angry today, for any reason, ask yourself, What do I need to get rid of in my life? Give that what, to the Lord, then remember this: He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; Proverbs Ch. 16 verse 32a and be ye kind one to another, Ephesians Ch. 4 verse 32a.
