Day 32: Rising in the Midst of Anger

Ephesians 4:26: "Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger."

Soar! In 66 days

Ephesians 4:26: "Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger." Contrary to popular belief, anger isn't inherently sinful. There is a righteous kind of anger that comes from the Holy Spirit: anger against injustice, evil, and everything contrary to God's holiness. However, we are instructed to control our anger. If we're not careful, our anger can blossom into hatred. Instead, we should confront our feelings before they consume us and push us toward sin. Learning to rise in the midst of our anger is a crucial part of growing in our faith.

Write down some thoughts or feelings that causes anger to rise within you.

Anger rooted in our sin nature produces "quarreling, jealousy, anger, hostility, slander, gossip, conceit, and disorder"  (2 Corinthians 12:20).  Sinful anger is so common in us that we must be regularly reminded to put away "anger, wrath, [and] malice" (Colossians 3:8)  It produces "enmity, strife . . . fits of anger [i.e. tantrums], rivalries, dissensions, [and] divisions" (Galatians 5:20).  So on today take control of your anger, deal with it before it leads you into sin. 

  • Overlook others' angry insults

  • Be slow to anger

  • Forgive

  • Be motivated by love, not anger
