This is a really hard thing to do. Sometimes it is so easy to get angry…about everything… sometimes before we even know what’s going on…
So, what can we do to love, instead of becoming easily angered?
~Easily, Focus on others~
•Think the best of people
“But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.” ~ Matthew 5:22
•Don’t jump to conclusions
“We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” ~Romans 15:1-4
•Ask questions and listen
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of Yahweh.“
May we learn to control our anger. May love outshine even any thoughts of anger in our hearts. May we listen before speaking, and focus on others…
Love…a four letter word that doesn’t begin with Anger.
