We have to strive to stop being angry because it keeps us in a constant state of worry that will gradually wear away at the armor of God that we put on to protect ourselves. It will allow the enemy a foot hold to reek havoc in your life. The enemy can use people, places, and things to make you angry so that you take your eyes off of Jesus and what His plan for us is. If you have a sharp tongue and use it in anger against someone you are promoting wickedness which is the opposite of what God’s word teaches us. We are to speak in love, to lift others up and show the love of Christ. Proverbs 15:1 says ” A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.” and Proverbs 15:4 says ” A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But Perverseness in it breaks the spirit.” So the next time someone makes you angry instead of lashing out with hurtful words stop and pray for God to give you the words to say in that moment so the love of Christ shows through you.
