Be Angry and Sin Not

February 13, 2021 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath.”

(Ephesians 4:26)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

God’s Word tells us to be “slow to wrath” (Proverbs 14:29, James 1:19). There’s nothing that will do more damage to your relationships than unwanted, unwarranted anger. If you are given to anger, let me tell you a couple of things the Bible says, and it won’t be flattering.

First, the Bible says you are foolish. Ecclesiastes 7:9 says, “anger rests in the bosom of fools.”

Second, you have a weak character. Proverbs 16:32 says, “He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.” Uncontrolled anger is like throwing a rock into a wasp nest.

ACTION POINT:

Do you have a short fuse? If so, confess it to the Lord. Don’t let Satan get a stronghold in your life. If you get angry today, ask yourself, “What need is not being met?” Give that need to the Lord.
