Deal With It

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Ephesians 4:26-27

"Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil" (Ephesians 4:26-27).

We've all been there, we've had an argument (with our spouse, a friend, our parents, a sibling, a boss) and we are MAD. We stomp off to our bedroom, our office cubicle, our corner of the room and we stew. We dwell on the situation, replaying the exchange of words over and over again, and as we do, our blood continues to boil and even gets a bit hotter. It's not a good situation, and if we don't choose to take control of our anger right then and there, what follows will be an ugly, sinful downward spiral.

Why is it important to take control of and deal with our anger right away? Think of a time when you didn't promptly deal with your anger. How did continuing to dwell on a negative situation impact you? How does choosing to hold on to our anger, open the door for sin? Tami

Deal with it is good!
What does dealing with it mean?
I think, that I should find the CAUSE of my anger.
Learn to forgive, ask for forgiveness and I should seek
God's power to give me the victory over anger search for the cause of my anger.
Dwelling on the negative NEVER solved the conflict.
Holding on to anger ( resentments, bitterness,) will eventually lead to out-burst of anger and which can lead to violence.
