It does much damage and no good for sure!
Are we all guilty as Christians? Most of us are or have been at times.
Still we can’t make excuses for ourselves.
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14.
Oh the matchless love of God and who can know it? His infinite wisdom and mercy we don’t deserve.
“The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.” Psalm 103:8.
Still The LORD abided faithful to even try to keep us as Christians, from falling into ‘traps’ of the enemy.
My Bible app gave me a scripture for today’s meditation.
It put me to thinking and ‘cross referencing’ different scriptures on this subject of ‘anger’.
Why don’t we do it God’s way? Let us take heed to our ways.
“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” Proverbs 15:1.
I dedicate this song today to Gabrielle Fuehrer who I believe is a true Psalmist. She writes her poems and blesses us here with them on HKP.
This today will be short (comparatively) to some other articles I’ve written… lol.
I will close with these scriptures.
My prayer is all of us to come closer to The LORD and let Him help and keep our tongues and mouth. This goes out to me first, as always.
God bless you all.
