As men, husbands, and fathers, sometimes in dealing with daily life situations we become angry
at things we cannot control. It is sometimes difficult to deal with your 2.0’s and keep your cool. I
have had trouble in this matter and have come to the realization that they are young and not
able to convey their feelings or intent. We as fathers need to try to keep our minds and stay calm
and help them through their situations.
James, Chapter 1, Verse 19-20
My Dear Brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and
slow to become angry, for a man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
Discussion by: Richard Walters
We live in an age of rage. By studying anger and it’s power, we can learn self-control so that we
do not need to lose our temper in rageor abuse ourselves with resentment, but can defuse anger
by resolving circumstances. We should reflect prayerfully about how we can incorporate these
resolutions in our own lives:
To keep my life centered on God, as best as I can, recognizing that when I do not, my natural self will generate things to become angry about.
To not condemn myself for feelings of anger.
To do everything I can to avoid acting on the basis of anger,
To clean up any problems I create as quickly as possible.
To redirect the energy of anger away from hurting people and toward improving
conditions for people.
Each person who has sought God’s help in understanding and resolution of his anger has without exception.received that help. There is indeed a miracle involved. It is the miracle of God’s love for us, the miracle of his redemptive grace.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to lead you HIM this morning in the gloom.
