Anger

DSC00633

Anger is the enemy of reason. Men do in the heat of passion what their reason, in a moment of objectivity, abhors. You are never in greater danger of living in regret than when you find anger beginning to take its awful hold on you.

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, NIV)

Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end. (Proverbs 29:11, NIV)

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. (Psalm 37:8, NIV)

“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. … Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4: 26-27, 32, NIV)
