TODAY’S READING

Ephesians 4:25-32

KEY VERSE: The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. – Psalm 103:8 (NIV)

MESSAGE

I was driving home from work one day when another car cut into my lane, almost hitting me. I became furious and wanted to make the driver stop so that I could express my anger. Then I remembered the above scripture verse. I pulled over on the shoulder of the road and prayed, “Thank you, God, for helping me control my anger before it caused more trouble.” What I intended to do could have caused an accident or unnecessary harm.

Acting on anger often leads to undesirable outcomes and regrets. It is easy to say and do things we don’t mean when we’re angry, and we can hurt others in the process. Sometimes the hurt we cause may never go away or may take years to heal. It is important to keep God’s words with us at all times and learn from God to protect ourselves and the people we encounter.
