Dealing with Anger

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today we are gathered here to discuss anger and how it affects our lives.


Of course, anger is an emotion we all experience, but it's essential to understand God's view of anger, our hope, how we can change, and how to stay changed.


Firstly, let us turn to the book of James 1:19-20 which says, "My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires." This scripture teaches us that anger is not a productive emotion, and we should strive to control it.


Secondly, let us focus on our hope. The book of Psalms 147:3 says, "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." Our hope lies in God; only He can heal us from the pain and hurt that causes anger. We need to trust in God's ability to heal us and turn to Him in times of trouble.


Thirdly, we need to understand how we can change. The book of Proverbs 29:11 says, "Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end." It's important to realize that we have a choice when it comes to anger. We can either give in to it and allow it to control us, or we can choose to be wise and bring calm to the situation.


Lastly, we need to know how to stay changed. The book of Ephesians 4:26-27 says, "In your anger, do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold." Therefore, we need to be vigilant and guard our hearts against anger. We can do this by continually seeking God's help and relying on His strength to keep us from falling back into old habits.


In conclusion, let us remember that God's view of anger is not a productive emotion, and our hope lies in Him. We can change by choosing to be wise and bringing calm to situations, and we can stay changed by guarding our hearts and seeking God's help. So let us pray that God will give us the strength to control our anger and live a life that brings honor and glory to Him. Amen.
