Refrain from Anger

Psalm 37 8 

Verse of the Day: Psalm 37:8

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret–it leads only to evil.

During an argument, in the heat of the moment sometimes we say things we don’t mean and may later regret. We let our anger get the best of us and we lose control of our emotions. Anger in itself is not necessarily a sin but how we handle that anger and letting it control us is where we cross the line. The Bible says that one of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control and so with the help of the Lord we must learn to control our emotions. In order to learn to control our anger we should first acknowledge it and then pray about it, confessing our weaknesses to God and asking Him to help us deal with any underlying issues that may be causing our anger to surface in such a way. There are many techniques and resources that can help you with anger management and in some cases you might also want to seek help from your pastor or a professional.
