Most of us have heard of road rage.  But the road is not the only place anger takes place. There have been several incidents in my lifetime of people who have been so angry at work they have taken a gun to work and killed several employees. It makes you kinda scared to even want to work out in the public. I remember there was a postal worker who just went beserk kinda where the whole “don’t go postal” came from.

What the Bible says

According to the bible, there is a whole host of problems that arise from anger but I think I will let that be for another post. The bible also tells us in Ephesians 4:26 not to let the sun go down on our anger and in Proverbs 19:11 A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. Proverbs is probably one of my favorite books in the bible. It’s like a condensed source of wisdom. I could overwhelm you with the sheer amount of verses that talk about not letting anger get the best of you. I heard one paster say something akin to when the bible mentions something at least once then you need to listen but if it is mentioned twice then you need to head it and if it is 3 time then don’t falter to put it into action.

Just a little more 

Most Christians buy into the whole don’t get angry. Now I don’t agree with the whole idea of never getting angry. However, letting it eat at you and burn inside you dwelling on it. This is where the problem lies. I think that is what It means in Ephesians about not letting the sun go down and your anger. Choosing to let it go and let God take care of it. As it says in Proverbs 23:11 for their (the righteous) Defender is strong; he will take up their case against you. In other words Christians you have someone else who will fight your battles for you. But he will not take up your case if you don’t choose to give it to the lord as it says in 1peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Romans 12:19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.     1 John 2:9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister (in Christ) is still in the darkness.
