There is a misconception concerning anger; that is it is a sin to become angry. However, the premise is that anger is a God given right; however, it is how we use which needs explanation. It is therefore the case that once angry one can learn to use it as a motivator of good.

Anger is a natural emotion

God doesn't offer freedom from anger, but he does offer freedom from sin. Hence, the word saying, "Therefore, having put off the false, speak truth, each one with his neighbour, for we are members of one another. “Be wroth, but do not sin.” Do not let the sun go down on your rage, nor give place to the devil." (Ephesians 4:25-27).

Lots of things make us angry with cause and without. However, it is our response that makes us sin. It is what we do with the anger that gets us in trouble. Anger can be a motivator to stop something or begin something....good because many people would be still in a place or situation had not anger been present. It is the case that anger can land us in prison or get us out!

Has anyone ever had a thought that enough is enough! Anger is a good emotion to have.

Today: Don't be doormat. You can be angry, but do not sin!

For your hearing:

Ephesians 4
