Reflections for August 9, 2015

Ephesians 4:25—5:2

“Don’t let the sun set on your anger.”

Anger is a common human emotion. It is always caused by some other emotion – jealousy, perhaps, or a sense of feeling left out, or a sense of injustice for yourself or others. Anger is not always a negative; sometimes it inspires us to positive action. Yet it can also eat away at us. The advice not to let the sun set on our anger is good advice, for it encourages us to deal with that anger while it is still fresh, and not to let it fester.

This week, consider a situation or issue that is making you angry. How might you turn that anger into positive action?
