What Bible says about Anger?

Though there are different types of emotions which human’s express, the worst and troublesome emotion is “Anger”. It is natural that every living being expresses anger. When you know how to get angry, you should also learn how to control that anger. If not you would be considered as a short-tempered person. Hence we read in Galatians 5:14-15 as, ““Love your neighbour as yourself. If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other”. First of all, when you get angry, try to be calm and control your anger. Always be cautious about how to avoid further arguments which may lead yourself into a big quarrel.

 

Are you struggling a lot to control your anger? Do not worry, you can always try to control your anger. When you put off anger, that situation or environment seems new to you. As we read in Ephesians 4:26, “In your anger do not sin; Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry”. Anger will always lead your life into sin. So whenever you get angry on someone, never forget to make peace with them before you turn away from them. When you compromise or ask “SORRY” your heart feels light and the rest of your day becomes peaceful. When there is peace in your heart, you will be able to focus on important tasks for the day and you needn’t have to think about anything else which would trouble you or force you to take revenge on someone.

And so the Bible clearly says in Proverbs 15:18, “A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel”. So it is you, who have to decide for yourself… Whenever you step into an argument, decide whether you wish to stir it up or whether you wish to stay calm to prevent further quarrel. When you are angry, your mind is engaged with stress and so you cannot think positive. For sure, there are high chances for you to make wrong decisions or do something wrong. Such a decision would either hurt you, or would hurt the person with whom you had a conflict. So one of the best solution which the Bible gives is in Psalm 4:4, “In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent”.

As Psalm 145: 8 says, “The Lord is gracious and compassionate; slow to anger and rich in love”, when God Almighty is so slow to get angry on us all, for ours sins against Him, why can’t we be slow in showing our anger and be fast in showing our love? Be true to yourself. Do not be a person who pretends to be forgiving and then hide vengeance in your heart for years and years, to destroy someone who has caused you pain. Let’s try living like we read in Romans 12:19, “Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay says the Lord”. Keep this mighty verse in your mind always, whenever you feel anger peeping out of you. Your life will be renewed and remember that “LOVE” is more powerful than “Anger” and “LOVE” always defeats “Anger”!

Psalms 30:5

“For His anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”

Message:

Too much of something becomes tasteless. Too much sweetness, too much bitterness, too much joy, too much sorrow is no good. So things should and will change to add essence to your life. Though you may weep in the night, your morning will be filled with happiness. Though you may think God is angry on you, His favor lasts with you throughout your lifetime. God’s love on you is always everlasting.

Bible Verse about Anger

Bible Verse of the Day January 22, 2013

Colossians 3:8

“But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.”

Message:

Despite of all our good characters, we also posses bad characters such as anger, racism, filthy language and much more. But most of the time, our bad characters rule over us, much more than our good characters. When we are in a bad situation, we think that everyone should understand that situation, and if they don’t’, we get angry very soon.

When we are in anger, we speak unnecessary words and we also hurt others. Since anger brings in so much trouble, stay calm and then make others understand your  situation. Anger can only cause problems and can do no good to you or people around you. So as children of God, suppress all the bad characters within you with your good characters like love, kindness and forgiveness.
