HOW TO DEAL WITH ANGER AND BITTERNESS

By Edwin Christiaan

“Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.” Ephesians‬ ‭4:26-27‬ ‭NLT

“If you are angry, you cannot do any of the good things God wants done.” James‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“Stop being bitter and angry and mad at others. Don’t yell at one another or curse each other or ever be rude. Instead, be kind and merciful, and forgive others, just as God forgave you because of Christ.” Ephesians‬ ‭4:31-32‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.” James‬ ‭1:19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Bottomline,

“You must quit being angry, hateful, and evil. You must no longer say insulting or cruel things about others.” Colossians‬ ‭3:8‬ ‭CEV‬‬

I ask you to please forgive me for taking revenge [...]
