Be angry, and do not sin, do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Eph. 4:26-27
God gets angry, but He never sins. His anger is righteous, and if it angers God, it should anger us. Unrighteous anger, the kind I, and perhaps you, may struggle with is, of course, not the same. It’s typically about me and my glory. Although I certainly do feel anger about many things that offend God, I’d be wise to remember I once participated in many of those very things. But by His grace and mercy my eyes were opened and I see!
You would think that would be that, but it’s not. I’m still here in the world and get angry at the traffic, the incompetent cable provider, and the lack of being able to get what I want when I want it. I won’t go on, but I could. Thank the good, oh so very good Lord that I’m not where I was, but I’m on the way to where I should be. That’s not an excuse I want to lean on, just a reminder to chill out and on keep going…
Thankful for HIM,
