  1. The Consequences of Anger

    Ephesians 4:26,27 In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.

    Ephesians 4:31,32 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

    Read along......

    "Never forget that you have a higher calling which is realized only by humbling yourself
    to the level of a servant. Look for the opportunities that the Lord will give you today to
    serve someone. Take yourself alongside Christ, who was the ultimate servant of all !"


    Anger is common emotion that arises when one encounters a threat, insult, injustice, or frustration! God Himself
    feels anger and He has given us this same ability. But because of our fallen nature, we often respond in a sinful
    manner when this intense feeling overwhelms us. One prevalent response is to hold on to anger until it becomes
    part of our character. It takes up residence in the innermost being and starts to twist thinking and agitate emotions.
    Peace and joy cannot co-exist with the anxiety and frustration that accompany bitterness. After poisoning the
    character, an angry spirit spills over into other relationships. Hurtful words are thrown like flaming arrows, even at
    those innocents who aren't the cause of the rage. Shields of protection are raised in an effort to avoid any
    future hurts. Unfortunately, the results of these behaviors is stressed relationships and isolation.

    While anger CAN damage character and connections with others, its most tragic consequence is broken
    fellowship with God. Wrath not only hinders His work in and through believers; it also grieves the Father's heart
    big time ! What He desires is to shower His children with blessings, but fists full of anger cannot receive His
    riches of character and calling.

    Fruit of the day: "Are you harboring anger? It could be so deeply burried within your soul that you are unaware
    of its presence. But sustained, unresolved bitterness WILL affect every area of your life. Ask God to reveal
    any hidden resentment. Release it and take hold of the riches of Christ !"

    Word of the day:
    "Trouble is the common denominator of living. It is a great equalizer !"

    Food for thought:

    "Apologizing does not mean that you are wrong and the
    other is right. It simply means that you value the relationship
    more than your ego !"

    "Even little acts of kindness are never known to hurt anyone. All bread are meant to be shared.
  2. I look at it this way. The Father always has open arms to me even when I'm mad, He is there with open arms ready to forgive me. So if my wife and I are mad at each other, since I am the man accountable to God, I am to have open arms first; regardless if I feel I am right or not. Forgiveness should be quick.
  3. Good post. Thank you!
  4. Definitely food for the spirit.

    God bless,

  5. Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.

    And He said to them, It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves. Matthew 21:12-13

    Jesus entered the temple area, His indignation was directed toward those who had changed the character of the temple from a place of prayer into a place of corrupt commercialism.

    Many were making their living from the temple and the sacrifices purchased there.

    They insisted that in the temple the people could not use money that had been circulating in society, but had to change their money into temple money first, for a fee, and then use the temple money to purchase animals for sacrifice, at inflated prices.

    Since such extortion was completely contary to the temple's purposes the Lord overturned their tables and benches while quoting parts of the OT verses Isaiah 56:7 and Jeremiah 7:11.

    Such a thing as 'righteous anger.'
  6. Thats right. I always tell people if we do something wrong never run away from Him; that's the time to run TO him :)
  7. Many Christians anger at non christians. That is one thing I wish we could work on is how to co exist and live with other people of other faiths and stop putting them down or condemning them to hell. And most importantly I wish we would stop trying to force them to see things our way. I see it all the time and as a Christian I don't like it.
  8. Anger is one of the 7 deadly sins.

    Just thought Id drop by this thread with that :-P
