Dealing with anger towards others
January 5, 2012
Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
Growing up, my mother had a pressure cooker. And I distinctly recall one Sunday when she was cooking green beans, and all of a sudden I heard, “AAAAAHHHHH!” from the kitchen. So I walked in there and I saw green beans hanging from the ceiling! The cooker had exploded from the pressure inside.
That’s just like so many people today, isn’t it? They’ve got so much pressure and so much anger on the inside. They may give the excuse, “Oh, that’s just the way I am” or “That’s just my temperament.” But the Bible says that in Christ, you are a new person. So put away those things that destroy and damage you and those around you… including your temper!
When Debbie and I got married, we made a pledge to one another that we would never go to sleep angry at each other. Well, we’ve kept that promise. In fact, we’ve stayed up half the night on some occasions because we know how destructive anger can be. It’s like a parasite that slowly eats away at you.
Relationships are rarely shattered because of one incident. Instead, anger builds over time and eventually explodes all over the place. So if you have anger in you, don’t let it go unchecked. Confess it to others and make things right today!
ANGER IS A VERY DESTRUCTIVE FORCE FOR ANY RELATIONSHIP. SO IF YOU HAVE ANGER TOWARD SOMEONE, CONFESS IT AND MAKE IT RIGHT TODAY!

Understand what’s visible by unveiling the Invisible!
While so many people today only focus on what’s visible, there’s an invisible realm that’s just as real and just as active as the physical world you see.
Yet as you go about your daily life, it can be easy to forget that truth, which puts you right in the crosshairs of the evil one.
In this eye-opening 10-message series called Invisible, you’ll come along with me as I exploresuch topics as the existence of angels, the battle for your mind, and what heaven is really like. After hearing it, you’ll be better equipped to have real victory in the spiritual realm!
I want to send youInvisible to thank you for your online donation to PowerPoint today. I know you’ll never see your physical world the same once you unveil the Invisible!
