Anger to Evil

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Acts 23:12-35; Psalm 4:4; Proverbs 29:11; Proverbs 22:24

The mainline Jews are angry with Paul. They are unwilling to accept the fact that he is taking the message of God's love and salvation to the Gentiles. But instead of keeping their anger in check, they allow this powerful emotion to run rampant (both individually and as a group). The result is evil and ugly--lies, hatred, manipulation, planning to commit murder. What a clear depiction for us of the sinful side of anger. In other words, how unchecked anger can blind us and lead us down the path to sinful thoughts, words and actions.

What's an example where you handled anger appropriately or you witnessed someone else responding well in their anger? What helps you stop and get a grip on anger so that it doesn't lead you to sin? Tami

I'm blessed to have a long fuse when it comes to anger. Quite often, the Lord's gentle whispers in my moments of anger will restrain me so that I can get a handle on things.
