Business guru, Seth Godin, posted this on his blog.
Just because he's angry
... doesn't mean he's right.
... or even well-informed.
Something to think about when dealing with a customer, a leader or even a neighbor.
It's easy to assume that vivid emotions spring from the truth. I'm not so sure. They often come from fear and confusion and well-told stories.
God gets angry. It's in the Bible. The wrath thing. That's scary. God is angry with sin.
We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation. Psalm 90:7
God manages his anger (I doubt he took a class for this.)
The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Psalm 103:8
Letting our own anger run our life is dumb.
Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools. Ecclesiastes 7:9
God expects us to do something about our quick temper, leveled at another person (as opposed to sin, which we can hate.)
"In your anger do not sin" : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, Ephesians 4:26
Our anger is often not righteous
because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. James 1:20
What makes you angry? Do you take your anger out on others? What are you angry about? Deep down? Talk it out in prayer and conversation with a trusted friend.
