Principle 4


The Basics: God’s Word warns against the folly and the futility of anger. It’s a warning you should take seriously.

When you are angry, do not sin, and be sure to stop being angry before the of the day. Do not give the devil a way to defeat you.
– Ephesians 4:26-27 NCV

Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. 
– James 1:19-20 NIV

A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control. 
                                  – Proverbs 29:11 NIV

A Basic Tip: If you think you’re aout to explode in anger, don’t! Instead of striking back at someone, it’s usually better to slow down, catch your breath, consider your options and walk away if you must. It’s better to walk away – and to keep walking – than to blurt out angry words that can’t be un-blurted.

Get rid of the poison of built-up anger and the acid of long-term resentment. 
                                                                                      Charles Swindoll

There is much to study on anger in Bible. If this is a problem you have,
I advise you spend a lot of time in prayer and
reading/studying/taking in God’s Word.
He will help you change, if you ask, in His time.
Try your best to be the example God wants you to be.

Further Study:
Anger subsided: Stay with him for a while until your brother’s fury subsides. 
                                                                                      – Genesis 27:44

  • Have an accountability partner you can turn to in your anger.
  • If you cannot have an constant accountantability partner - at least in times of 
    anger, find someone other then the person you're anger with to discuss the 
  • Write yourself a letter/note about the situation. All details, spelling out pro's 
    and con's of the situation. If you did speak in anger, write out how you should 
    have handled the situation better and plan on aplogizing for your actions.

Anger without sin: In your anger do not sin;
                                             when you are on your beds,
                                             search your hearts and be silent.
                                     – Psalm 4:4

Debilitating anger:
A quick-tempered man does foolish things,
    and a crafty man is hated.
                                                                                      – Proverbs 14:17

Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit,
      for anger resides in the lap of fools.
                                                      – Ecclesiastes 7:9

Gentle words:
A gentle answer turns away wrath,
   but a harsh word sitrs up anger. 
                                                                                       – Proverbs 15:1

A man of knowledge uses words with restraint,
   and a man of understanding is even-tempered.
                                                                                       – Proverbs 17:27

Controled anger: Better a patient man than a warrior, 
                                        a man who controls his temper than
                                                 one who takes a city.
– Proverbs 16:32

Share your thoughts, Scripture’s on your heart… I look forward to
walking this journey with you.

Be Blessed, HL
