Did you know that you can be angry and not sin? In fact, Paul commands us to do just that in Ephesians 4.
Momentary anger alerts us to a hurt that needs attention. However, the key to healthy resolution of anger is anchored in our relationship with God, not with people.
When we see others as valued creations of God, and especially when we embrace them as members of Christ’s body, honest communication reflecting God’s love for us is the starting point for resolving anger. Addressing our hurt promptly blocks a devilish foothold for malignant consequences of unresolved anger.
