Today's Verse : Ephesians 4:26-27


April 26, 2012

"In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you
are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
-- Ephesians 4:26-27

Pent up anger is an explosion waiting to happen. Sooner or
later, the pent up frustration will explode, either in our own life
or into the life of someone else. Jesus taught us to forgive and to
reconcile (Matthew 18). Anger must be dealt with. Otherwise the
devil will use it to abuse us as well as others in our lives. Don't
give him a foothold in your life. If you give him an inch (2.54
cm), he'll take a mile (1.61 km)!

Father in heaven, thank you for the ability to get angry at the
things that anger you. Please help me channel that emotion in ways
that are productive and help me to be repulsed at evil. Please stir
my heart to reconciliation, especially when that anger is against
one of your children. By the power of your Holy Spirit, help me to
forgive as you have forgiven me. In the name of Jesus, my Lord, I
pray. Amen.
