Reading: Ephesians 4: 26-32
So often when we get angry, we want to react immediately. We want to yell, scream, and express our displeasure with loud words to the person we are angry with. We want to get it out and show our anger toward that person.
But God's Word says that we should be slow to speak and get angry. We should not have a knee jerk reaction to something that gets under our skin. And, if we do get angry, we should not hold a grudge. I heard a saying once that a wise person does not go to bed angry. I think that is very sound advice, especially taking into account what the Bible says.
So, next time you are angry remember what we are taught in this verse. Don't be quick to get angry, and don't hold onto your anger either! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Write down how you want to deal with anger the next time you get angry. Place it somewhere you can see it and do what you suggest the next time you get angry!
