Everybody is vulnerable to extreme feats of anger. One minute you could be feeling happy-go-lucky, like nothing could ruin your day, the next minuscule your eyes wanting to pop out of their sockets and your mouth spouting curses after every more word. Everyone could feel happy, sad, lonely or ecstatic. So everyone is entitled to feel angry, too.
The object about displeasure is that menagerie try to justify it too quantity for their own good. When someone gets angry to the point of physical violence, they try and evade the issue by saying it’s the other person’s fault for their being angry in the first place. Is this the attitude God wants us to adopt from the Bible verses? I doubt it. Should we blame others for our own shortcomings and inability to control our own emotions? No. Period.
But it should be noted there’s also such a thing as reverent anger. Sad but true, but sometimes we need to feel anger granting we want to let go of our pent up emotions. Store these emotions inside for too long and you risk inviting health issues against your life. You could say get rid of the source of your anger instead. But who lives a life without problems? Everyone has problems. Even the happiest and the richest people on the planet possess problems. No one is problem-free.
But what is the Bible truly saying about anger? Let’s rediscover the following Bible verses about anger.
“Do not hate your amicable in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in his guilt. Do refusal seek punitive or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your verge comme il faut yourself. I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:17-18)
“In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.” (Psalm 4:4)
“A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.” (Proverbs 12:16)
“A wise man fears the Lord and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless.” (Proverbs 14:16)
“Make no friendship with a guard given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.” (Proverbs 22:24-25)
“Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.” (Ecclesiastes 7:9)
The Bible verses make it a point to make clear God’s stance on the issue. God favors the unprovoked spirit, and calls reckless and hotheaded men fools. The Bible verses say we should learn the ways of the prudent man granting we hunger to lighthearted a life of slake and free from anger.
Problems can’t be eliminated altogether. But we dictate how we answer to certain situations and circumstances, and it is along these times that God tests our patience against angry and anger. Prove yourself against these tests. Show you are worthy of the Lord’s sympathy through showing sympathy yourself.
