James 1:19-20 (NASB)
19 This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.
Matthew 5:22 (NASB)
22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.
Father, so often we believe that we have the right to be angry. Forgive us Lord, as a nation and as Your church for only giving lip service to Your Holy Spirit’s words, through Paul, that our struggle is not against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12) and cause us Father to be slow to speak and slow to anger. In the name of Your Son, who balanced this perfectly, amen.
