Surrender Your Anger
Ephesians 4:31, Ephesians 4:26-27

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.

Maybe we need to discover Why We Get Angry
Sometimes we think, and we are taught that all anger is sinful and is a result of man’s fall and original sin.

And it is from these two characteristics of God, his love and his holiness that we see his anger displayed, when justice and righteousness are neglected or rejected.

Now whether or not you were done wrong isn’t the question. The question is whether you perceived that you were done wrong.

And the bible acknowledges that, what it challenges us on is not our anger, but how we respond in our anger.

But I think Jesus was upset over the fact that those who were supposed to be leading people to God were taking advantage of them.

If you find yourself reacting immediately in anger, you are probably in the wrong. You are letting your anger control you instead of controlling your anger.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote “For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.”

As Christians we need to go back time and time again to the multitude of scriptures that remind us that we are supposed to forgive others just as God forgave us.

But understand, this you will control your anger, or your anger will control you.
