Watch Your Temper!

  Be angry but do not sin. Do not let the sun go down on your anger. Do not give place to the devil.-Ephesians 4:26-27 (MEV)

Our Lord knows we are going to get angry. He Himself had moments when He was hardly pleased. Let us not forget His anger in the Temple. However, it is important that we know why we are angry (if it is truly justified) and that we do not stay living with that anger. God knows we must work through it, grow from it and move on to do His work in love, for God is love. Anger and love are hardly fit companions for each other. God’s Word has much to say on the topic of anger –for good reason. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, outbursts, and blasphemies, with all malice, be taken away from you. -Ephesians 4:31 (MEV)
