In Anger

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Esther 1:10-2:1; Psalm 4:4; Ephesians 4:26-27

In his intoxicated state, King Ahasuerus becomes angry when Queen Vashti refuses to comply with his command to come before him and his male guests. Verse 12 tells us, "At this the king became enraged, and his anger burned within him." So from the sounds of it, Ahasuerus is more than a little miffed. He's consumed with anger! And in this emotionally unstable state (and remember, he was also intoxicated) he launches into action with the result being that Vashti, his beautiful and cherished wife, is banished from his presence forever. Reacting in anger made a bad situation even worse.

What are the dangers of responding to someone or reacting to a situation when we're angry? When are you most likely (in what situations, with what people) to get angry and respond poorly? What are one or two things that help you respond appropriately ("be angry and do not sin") when someone or something makes you mad? Tami
