Top 5 Bible verses to turn to when you're angry
What makes you angry? Maybe you don't like the way your boss talks to you at work or your spouse spends too much money. What do you do when you feel anger coming on? Who do you turn to?
What does the Bible have to say about anger?
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - When we get angry we can say or do things we immediately regret. We hurt people. Sometimes we hurt ourselves, so what can we do when we need to control our anger?
Luckily for us, God left us His Word to turn to when we don't know what to do. Try memorizing a verse or two about what the Bible says about anger and the next time you feel like exploding, recite it to yourself and take a moment to think about what it means.
Here are five great anger quotes from the NIV Bible. Remember, God didn't create us to be angry all the time, He created us to love.
"Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret -it leads only to evil."
"In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold."
"Peace in time of monsters" (Delawer-Omar/DeviantArt).
"My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires."
"But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips."
Control yourself! Harboring anger harbors darkness! So the next time you're angry with someone -including yourself- let it go. Give it to God and release yourself from the mental and physical anguish anger brings. We are called to reach for Christ, who did not allow anger to overcome his emotions when he was chosen to die for our sins and he forgave those responsible for his death. If Christ can rise above anger and forgive his murderers, we can forgive each other and ourselves.
