"Do not let the sun go down on your anger" is often forgotten in these days of bad news flooding through our door via media. We meet people with an abiding anger that never relents, who seethe and boil over at every new piece of news that offends them. Leaping to conclusions based upon scanty and/or one-sided information from the media or from gossip feeds the demon of anger.
At some point the person becomes his anger. To have an attitude of gratitude for the blessings one has is a most potent antidote to the poisonous anger that engulfs and destroys one's soul. Remember that old adage: Holding a grudge is akin to swallowing poison and waiting for the other person to die.
We encourage all to lay down that anger and to seek the peace of Christ through confession, forgiveness, and the daily resolve to see God's Holy Will in one's life by being still and waiting patiently for Him.
fret not yourself over him who prospers in his way,
over the man who carries out evil devices!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
9 For the wicked shall be cut off;
but those who wait for the Lord shall possess the land.
