We all get angry at times, so what should we do about it?

Ephesians 4:26-27And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.

Anger is like a skunk in the house. Don’t feed it to encourage it to stay. And carefully try to get rid of it as soon as possible.

Matthew 5:21-23“You have heard that our ancestors were told, ‘You must not murder.’ . . . But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! . . . Go and be reconciled to that person.”

Confront those you are angry with in order to restore your relationship.

1 Corinthians 13:5[Love] is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.

Love is the mightiest weapon in overcoming anger.

Proverbs 11:29Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind.

Ephesians 6:4Do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them.

To knowingly provoke your family to anger weakens the binding force—love—that bonds your family together. The control you seek actually enslaves you.
