Good & Bad Anger

 

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 
James 1:19-20 


“Is all anger sin? No, but some of it is. Even God Himself has righteous anger against sin, injustice, rebellion and pettiness. Anger sometimes serves a useful purpose, so it isn’t necessarily always a sin. Obviously, we’re going to have adverse feelings, or God wouldn’t have needed to provide the fruit of self-control. Just being tempted to do something is not sin. It’s when you don’t resist the temptation, but do it anyway, that it becomes sin.” -Joyce Meyer

Prayer for the day:

Lord, You are a gracious and merciful God whose love covers a multitude of sins. Thank You for Your Word that reminds us to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry so that we will not grieve Your Holy Spirit. Guard our heart and set a watch over our lips to deal with situations constructively and give glory to Your name. Change our heart as we allow You to mould us into a vessel fit to carry Your gospel to the world. I thank You and bless You in Jesus' name. Amen.
