Anger: A Negative Quality

Key Verse

“Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go” (Proverbs 22:24).

Text — Proverbs 22:20-25


Fred encountered a routine traffic jam while driving on the highway. The policeman merely did his job by stopping him, but Fred was extremely angry at being stopped for traffic convenience. He was so furious that suddenly he began to convulse right there on the highway. What started as mere anger rapidly degenerated into a life-threatening situation. Fred could not continue his journey under the circumstance, he had to be helped back home. Embarrassingly, the situation revealed his medical condition- he was epileptic.

Anger is just one letter short of danger; and it can shorten one’s life span as it raises the blood pressure due to some biological reactions in the body. Our Lord Jesus said that the angry man is in danger of judgment. He is closer to the devil than God; and to hell than heaven. On the social level, anger shrinks your circle of friends – it isolates you. The cure for anger is simple: let Jesus into your heart. He can save one from all sins and their roots. You can be saved now if you are  yet to.


The cure for anger is simple


Unconquered anger rides you like a horse.

Prayer for today

Dear Jesus, reign within me with your peace. Amen.
