I have been thinking a lot today; wondering really... "What good does it do anyone to live life with Anger?"
In my life experience thus far, the above Bible verse stands true! Anyone that has acted with anger toward me or my loved ones, has certainly come across as a "fool".
There is no point to anger.....It doesn't solve anything, doesn't fix anything, doesn't turn back time, can't make things the way you want them, and certainly doesn't earn anyone friends.... Anger breaks down relationships, decreases trust, shows weakness, and hurts the recipients of it.
So what then shall we do when we begin to feel angry about something? Be wise and stay under control! How should we accomplish that? I have found that taking a break from the situation works wonders. Meditation, prayer, and finding answers within Scripture are also very helpful!
Wouldn't it be great to be the "wise man" that keeps under control? What did Jesus do whenever he was confused or upset? He prayed. He prayed to God to help him see the reason for his trials or mountains he faced. And then, once he understood God's plan, he was calm to move forward.
What then makes Anger worth acting upon? NOTHING! There is no reason to act out in anger. God can help you through it! Everyone who cares for you can help you through it! Anger is not to be blamed on current day stresses, nor on anyone other than ones-self. Look at this verse....Anger has been a issue since biblical times. But still today, it is a WISE MAN, who keeps his/her anger under control.
Strive to be wise, and control anger, toward anyone, yourself included. You will find, that a life without anger, is filled with much more happiness & joy!
May God guide each and every one of you toward a more peaceful, anger free, existence; full of Love and Happiness! Amen.
