So... don't laugh now... but I am taking an "anger management" class through my church.
Don't get the wrong idea now... I mean... granted, I am starting to go through "the change" and my hormones have been running wild, but I am not generally an angry person. I am passionate! Sooo... It's a class for "passionate" people!
The class is based off of Gary Chapman's book Anger: Handling a Powerful Emotion in a Healthy Way. Gary is the same author that also wrote the Five Love Languages. (Love that book!)
In light of what happen yesterday I decided that some homework today may be helpful to my situation...
WOW! I was right...
Here are a few of the verses that kinda made me go hmmmmmm...
For it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy." ~1 Peter 1:16
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. ~Ephesians 4:26-32
A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. ~Proverbs 19:11
Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. ~Proverbs 19:20
Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end. ~Proverbs 29:11
