By Dr. Tim Clinton
“Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end.”
1) See it – Identifying the cause of anger in your life especially opens your spirit for God’s help “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness…” (Romans 8:26 ESV)
2) Delay it – Learn the value of “calming” to allow the anger to subside. “Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.” (Proverbs 14:29 ESV)
3) Control it – Control your response rather than reacting emotionally. “Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.” (Proverbs 16:32 NIV)
4) Settle it – Commit to not only “doing” the right things, but also “being” the right person. “Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” (1 Peter 3:8-9NIV)
