"An angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins."NIV
"An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression."KJV
Anger is an emotion that all of us have and we exhibit at times. Most of us keep our anger under control and don't let it cause disruption when it arises. It is the person who is given to anger, the one who has an angry temperament that causes conflict and resulting sinful actions. It seems for these angry people, the anger takes control. They yell, verbally attack, dominate, and create anger or fear in others. An angry person will always sin against God and man by belittling, criticizing, cursing, being aggressive, destroying items, and ultimately murder. An angry person needs Christ in order to get rid of this destructive anger and become a new person who is Christlike. Without the fullness of Christ, there is no hope for the angry person.
Heavenly Father, forgive us if we are given to anger and have angry temperaments. Help us to seek the fullness of Jesus Christ so that our destructive anger will be abolished and we will become like Him and handle our human anger as He did. We ask in His precious name, Amen.
