How do you express your anger? Do you get upset, irritated, or grumpy? Do you scream, throw things, make sarcastic comments, or say cruel words? Do you suppress your angry emotions, feeling upset, sorry for yourself, or depressed?
Anger is usually destructive. Regardless of how you express anger, it is usually destructive. Your friends, spouse, and children may be afraid of you. People on the job may avoid you. You may be denied a promotion. Your anger hurts others, but it also hurts you—spiritually and physically. Most importantly, the Bible tells us that it grieves God.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. (Ephesians 4:30-31)
There is hope. You can overcome your anger. You may think you can’t overcome your anger. But with God’s help, the practical biblical truths in this book will help you change.
