FRIDAY 19TH OCT, 2018
FOCUS: ANGER IS POISONOUS
TEXT: Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
Pro 22:24 KJV
Anger can wreak havoc on both the body and soul, but its scope extends beyond the individual and impacts everyone nearby. In this way, bitter outbursts and silent resentment are not just our own personal issues.
An angry spirit is contagious. It can pass from one person to another—and even from one generation to the next. Workplaces can become tense environments full of caustic words and attitudes. Anger turns homes into battlegrounds of verbal explosions, silent hostility where all kinds of evil are birthed. Even churches suffer from malicious gossip and fights over personal preferences.
God created us to live in fellowship with others, but anger can poison our relationships. Tragically, those closest to us are the ones who suffer the most. Children learn to respond to life’s situations by observing their parents’ example. They then develop similar attitudes and patterns of behavior. We need to give serious thought to what kind of heart we are passing down to our sons and daughters.
Thankfully, God is in the heart-changing business. Just as we learn an angry person’s ways by association, so we can learn righteous ways by walking closely with the Lord. Christ calls us to come, learn from Him, and find rest for our souls (Matt. 11:28-29). May the Lord rebuild whatever anger has destroyed and restore to us all we may have lost to anger in Jesus name.
Thanks for reading and don't forget to like & share it, God bless you.
