Anger Destroys

Key Verse

“Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar.” 2 Chronicles 26:19

Text — 2 Chronicles 26:16-21


Anger is a dangerous behaviour that must not be in the life of a Christian at any time. It was pride and anger that brought leprosy upon King Uzziah. Stanley gets angry over every little thing. He gets upset when he doesn’t get what he wants, when his friends don’t act fair, tease him or when he is compelled to do things he doesn’t want to do. At times, he gets angry when told to go and do his homework instead of watching cartoon. At such times, his eyes would become red and he will murmur or throw things around the house. This got his mom so worried that she spanks him often.

Amazingly, he became unusually quiet and sober during the family devotion one morning when he read that “anger rests in the bosom of fools”. He thereafter asked his mom what to do to get rid of anger and react better when people do things to make him angry. Stanley’s mom explained that the first thing to do is to become a friend of Jesus by surrendering his heart to Christ in full repentance. He helps to get rid of the root of sin and makes it possible to have control over your emotions. If there is anger in your heart, pray now that God will deliver you.
