Strip Away the Root of Anger and Make Room for Healing.
“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice, and be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.”
Ever find yourself mounting in anger while talking to someone? Your blood begins to boil and all of a sudden you’re in an all out screaming match and not only that, the conversation becomes less productive. You might of been right, but that no longer matters, because the common ground has been severely damaged. We tend to no allow opportunity for the other person to save face.
What causes us to fly off the track? Maybe pride and control. Perhaps we believe we better than someone else? Smarter. We have it together and they don’t. Maybe they don’t match up to your standard of quality. What ever the reason, all signs point to trouble ahead!
I have been criticized over my performance. We become angry because of how we are spoken to. We need to be shown respect. It is all about presentation. That does not change the fact that anger doesn’t work. It damages relationships and people may forgive but sadly, they never forget.
Patience is either taught or learned through experience and if you don’t have it, it takes a great deal of work. It is definitely worth the work. We need to train ourselves to take the path of less resistance. Stress can really eat us up and destroy us from within. We can learn how to manage stress from the example of people around us. We have to learn to let go of our pride. It is the weakest part of us. Take a step back and relax.
He who is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who is quick tempered is foolish.
Not tackling the root to our anger and dealing with it, is like painting over a rusty car. It will soon come to the surface. Deal with the root of your anger first and then put on Love and Mercy.
One solution is speaking to people with respect. If they don’t believe you respect them or they may think you dislike or hate them, and whatever you are trying to accomplish will backfire. Like talking to a brick wall.
“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” If we can accomplish the same task without using hurtful remarks we can preserve relationships with our coworkers, acquaintances and loved ones. Let’s learn to build up instead of tear down!
This you know, my beloved brethren. But let everyone be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.
