“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and
anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be
put away from you, with all malice:”
Franklin said, “Whatever is begun in anger
ends in shame.”
the most destructive force in this
world. It is planted in sin, watered
in wrath and fertilized by pride.
Anger is sweet to the taste as it leaves the
heart and passes through the mouth, but in
the end it leaves such a bitter taste.
Anger produces anger and soon this bitter
fruit has affected many others.
results of anger are like that of an atomic
bomb: First the explosion, then the
flash of heat, the puffed up mushroom cloud
and widespread destruction at the
last. No wonder God told us to put
away ALL anger because of its destructive
power. You may say, “But God told us
to be angry, yet sin not. So, I am
allowed to be angry just as long as I don’t
go to the point of sin.” Yes, God did
say that to remind us that only Christ was
able to have perfect and righteous anger,
and that we couldn’t handle it. He
then tells us to put ALL anger away!
God knows that we cannot become angry
without destroying others and
ourselves. God’s wrath is always
righteous, and ours is always sinful.
God’s anger is for His glory and our good,
but our anger is for our good and others’
spring of 1894, the Baltimore Orioles came
to Boston to play a routine baseball
game. But what happened that day was
anything but routine. The Orioles'
John McGraw got into a fight with the Boston
third baseman. Within minutes all the
players from both teams had joined in the
brawl. The warfare quickly spread to
the grandstands. Among the fans the
conflict went from bad to worse.
Someone set fire to the stands and the
entire ballpark burned to the ground.
Not only that, but the fire spread to 107
other Boston buildings as well.
in anger. Don’t discipline in
anger. Don’t make decisions in
anger. Let us be principled, wise,
kind and gentle people in all that we do.
