Hasty in Anger

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Proverbs 14:17; Proverbs 14:29; Proverbs 19:19

For the next couple of weeks, we're going to take a break from reading through a Book of the Bible, and instead focus on a specific topic each week. So today through Friday, our verses and passages will focus on and/or give us a look at anger.

Getting angry is not a sin in itself. Anger is one of many God-given emotions that we can control, temper and harness to bring about good--when we're aware of our emotions and looking to God for guidance and strength to respond well. But because anger is such a powerful emotion and has a negative origin, we're more prone to give in to the temptation to sin by responding quickly and humanly.

"A man of quick temper acts foolishly, and a man of evil devices is hated" (Proverbs 14:17).

"Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly" (Proverbs 14:29).

"A man of great wrath will pay the penalty, for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again" (Proverbs 19:19).

When you get angry, how do you tend to respond? What impact does slowing down and seeking God in a situation where you are angry, irritated or frustrated have on you and your response, and the situation as a whole? Identify one or two things you can do to ensure a slower and better response the next time something or someone angers you? Tami
