~Be Angry and Sin NOT~


Ephesians 4:26 says” Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

Let not the sun go down – Do not cherish anger. Do not sleep upon it. Do not harbor a purpose of revenge; do not cherish ill-will against another. “When the sun sets on a man’s anger, he may be sure it is wrong.”

If you be angry, which may be the case, and which may be unavoidable, see that the sudden excitement does not become sin. Do not let it overleap its proper bounds; do not cherish it; do not let it remain in your heart. Let not the passion linger in the heart but let your heart find you always peaceful and calm.”

Far too often when we become angry, we get frazzled ready to share why we feel this way. We are eager to get our point across and if this does not work, we result to the deadliest blow which is not speaking at all.

We become a person of silence. And so, the other person thinks that we have given up or not thinking about it any longer. Little do we they know we have allowed ourselves to sink into a stupider.

We go to bed at night rehearsing the pain playing it over and over in our thoughts. You might be saying well I do not see how I am sinning well if you are thinking about ways to get even or try to make a person pay for what they done or manipulate the situation in any form of way then my friend you have sinned.

If you do get angry with anyone, see that the fire be cast with the utmost speed out of your heart. Do not go to sleep with any unkind or unbrotherly feelings. Anger that produces malice and revenge. No temper of this kind can consist with peace of conscience.

We want to always have a pure heart before the Lord.

Something in which we all need to practice.
