Dealing with anger

July 7, 2019

Mark Twain once quipped; “When angry, count to four. When very angry, swear.” 

Dealing with anger is something all people have to face.  It has the power to disintegrate our health, our communities, and our individual wisdom.  It is like an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. Having said that, it would seem that anger can be a legitimate response to genuine injustice.

Which brings us to the question - Is it possible for me to manage my anger in a God-honoring way: to be angry and not sin?
