Acting out of Anger

Have you ever been compelled to act because of your anger? Perhaps you saw something wrong taking place and it was your anger that caused you to take a stand. Or, perhaps someone attempted to argue with you over a key Biblical idea and anger gave you the fervor that you needed to really combat their arguments.

Indeed, anger motivates. Yet this motivation can be incredibly dangerous. While it may help us in the beginning, our attitude can suddenly take a turn that we don’t expect or that undermines exactly what we are trying to do. Just consider the way that the book of Proverbs approaches anger: “A man of quick temper acts foolishly, and a man of evil devices is hated” (Proverbs 14:17).
