Dealing with anger towards others

Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!  Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. Psalm 37:8

Growing up, my mother had a pressure cooker. And I distinctly recall one Sunday when she was cooking green beans, and all of a sudden I heard, “AAAAAHHHHH!” from the kitchen. So I walked in there and I saw green beans hanging from the ceiling! The cooker had exploded from the pressure inside.

That’s just like so many people today, isn’t it? They’ve got so much pressure and so much anger on the inside. They may give the excuse, “Oh, that’s just the way I am” or “That’s just my temperament.” But the Bible says that in Christ, you are a new person. So put away those things that destroy and damage you and those around you… including your temper!

When my wife and I got married, we made a pledge to one another that we would never go to sleep angry at each other. Well, we’ve kept that promise. In fact, we’ve stayed up half the night on some occasions because we know how destructive anger can be. It’s like a parasite that slowly eats away at you.

Relationships are rarely shattered because of one incident. Instead, anger builds over time and eventually explodes all over the place. So if you have anger in you, don’t let it go unchecked. Confess it to others and make things right today!
