Good Morning my friends!!!
“Anybody can become angry — that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way — that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.” ― Aristotle
There’s been many times during my & Keri’s 24+ years of marriage that my words have hurt her. They have cut her deeply and the scars that those words caused are visible. It’s really shame that us guys aren’t given a book when we turn 13 on how to communicate with a female. Instead we are thrown out into the world and left to learn on our own or we are left to learn from the role model in our home which most of the time is of little value.. I’m not bashing fathers by no means because they’re just a product of their upbringing but to break the cycle men must be willing to admit they’re at fault, be willing to change and then do it.
Most of the time when we’re angry, we have the tendency to lash out verbally. We say things that we don’t mean but we know will intentionally hurt. That’s why God doesn’t like anger… Anger makes us lose what little control we have… Why do we get angry? I’m speaking about relationships (husband & wife) but this applies to pretty much any situation. People have the get angry when they hear the truth but it comes at a time when it’s not what we really want to hear. Many times they get angry when they’re caught in a lie or caught doing something wrong. If in a situation of such, if a person is not doing something wrong their normal reaction will not be of anger.
“For as churning cream produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife.” (Proverbs 30:33)
Why does God take anger so seriously and urge us to cast it out of our lives?
One reason is because of what it does to other people. We lash out at people in anger, we hurt them and create conflict with them, and that is wrong. God loves them just as much as He loves us, and when our anger hurts someone, we are harming someone God loves.
God also hates our anger because of what is does to us. Our anger cuts us off from others; no one likes to be around someone that might explode at any moment. Anger also hurts us by turning us into resentful, bitter, unloving people. Most of all, anger cuts us off from God, because anger makes us preoccupied with our own problems rather than with God’s will for our lives.
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU… Seek God to release the bitterness and anger you have in your life..
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC day.. Blessings & much love….D
ALWAYS…..Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
