Practical Messages for Impractical Times
Anger is the most misused emotion in present society. We use anger to physically, mentally, and emotionally abuse those who are closest to us. In the family, wives/mothers rank the highest as recipients of inappropriate anger.
Anger always produces negative behavior. The problem with misguided anger is that we always say and do things that are extremely hurtful. It eventually replaces the love for others with hostility for others. Biblically, there is no basis for love producing hurt. The phrase “Love Hurts” is from a satanic perspective of God’s love.
Will there be anger in the New Heaven and New Earth? What does God say about anger?
Ephesians 4:26 tells us when we are angry do not sin, and to not let the sun go down while we are still angry.
If you are struggling with inappropriate anger, studying God’s Word and praying are daily necessities to overcome the sin of anger. Prepare your character for Kingdom life one day at a time.
