Anger II

You can tell a great deal about a man by watching how he deals with anger. Generally he has learned how to process the emotion somewhere, and employs it subconciously with violence, agression, passive aggression, or denial.

Two extremes that will probably require some help to work through are:
An uncontrolled temper
Proverbs 29:22-An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression
Proverbs 14:17-He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated
Proverbs 22:24-Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go

An inablilty to get angry
-The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them; that’s the essence of inhumanity -G.B. Shaw
-Consider some of men Jesus chose to follow Him: Peter, James and John…other wise known as the Sons of Thunder
-Consider Paul
-Consider David in the Psalms
-Consider God the Father in the OT and Christ in the Gospels

Uncontrolled anger creates and promotes conflict. If that is you, whether you know it or not, you do alot of stupid things, and people hate being around you when you are blowing a gasket, and the Bible tells people to not be friends with you!

The inability to get angry represents a lack of care that is outside of how God created you to exist, and contrary to the examples we see in God’s Word and in God himself!

Stay away someone with so much “passion” they can’t control their emotion. And don’t trust someone who lacks the passion to exhibit a reaction. God created us for a purpose, and with passions. Extremes on either side are hurtful and destructive.
