Let Go Of Anger

Key Verse

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:” Ephesians 4:31

Text — Ephesians 4:31-32


Anger is one letter short of Danger. Anger is a strong feeling of displeasure and usually of antagonism (Merriam Webster Dictionary). Anyone easily given to anger is treading a dangerous path; it could lead to loss or destruction sooner than expected. The story was told of a woman who decided to visit her mother-in-law in a neighbouring village. It was a short distance and there was no means of transportation, so she with her children had to trek. The woman prepared and packed their lunch in a basket and asked her oldest child to carry the basket.

As they were going along the foot path, the woman’s younger child did something that made her elder sister angry. Without thinking, she flung the basket of food on the ground and started hitting her brother. All the food prepared by their mother scattered on the road and she started crying and blaming her brother. She could not control her anger, so everyone missed his/her lunch because of her unguided behaviour. A child of God should not get angry easily because it can cause pain and sorrow. Allow the Spirit of God to talk to you when you are provoked to anger. Let go of anger
