Proverbs 29:22 (NKJV) An angry man stirs up strife, And a furious man abounds in transgression.
Have you ever known an angry person? Someone who is constantly riled up about something? It’s always someone else’s fault isn’t it? It’s never them, it’s the other jerk, the other idiot, the other person who wronged them or gave them a reason to be mad.
Maybe that angry person is you. Maybe the common denominator in all the turmoil is you? Takes a big person to admit it.
Wherever anger is common, sin is common. One follows the other like a caboose follows a train engine. If you are that angry person, do something about it. If you know a person who is angry all the time, steer clear of them.
Think It Over: is turmoil and anger a consistent part of your life? Do you honestly believe it’s always the fault of the other person, or something out of your control? You cannot begin to change the situation until you admit that anger is a personal choice. Learn to be a thermostat (set your own temperature) rather than a thermometer (letting your circumstances set your temperature).
