When Anger Strikes

When Anger Strikes

Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.—Ephesians 4:26 (NIV)

WHEN WE ARE furious, Scripture advises that we should “Tremble and do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent” (Psalm 4:4). Once the clouds of emotion have cleared, most of us recognize that holding onto anger actually hurts us more than the person we’re mad at. The burden that anger places on our hearts can be lifted when we lift our hearts to God.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, help me to put away all bitterness wrath and anger. Guide me to peace.
