In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.  - Ephesians 4:26

In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.

- Ephesians 4:26

What is Anger?

Anger is usually a secondary response to one or more deeper root causes.

It occurs when there is a strong emotion of irritation or agitation over a need or expectation that is not being met.

Typically anger originates from hurt, fear, or injustice. And while anger itself is not a sin, how we react to it can be.

Anger is a normal God-given emotion. The Bible does not tell us that we shouldn’t feel angry. But it tells us that how we express anger determines whether or not it becomes a sin. Ephesians 4:26 tells us, “In your anger do not sin:” Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.

So how do we experience anger and not sin?

First, we need to understand the source of our anger—from where did it come?

Next, we need to realize that it is never God’s desire that we use anger as a tool to get our needs met.

Instead, we are to constructively react in all circumstances with control and express our feelings appropriately.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for enabling me to live a fruitful life that pleases you. I love you and ask you to direct me and my path today. Amen.

With Love,
Sherry Shepherd

Wow, your message definely was for me today, I wrote it all down! My husband has pulmonary fibrosis and just went through a year of testing with hopes of receiving a lung transplant at Loyola Hospital, but after all the testing he was rejected and told they have never done a lung transplant on a 78 year old before, so why would you then put him through all the testing and wear him out?,There are other hospitals that do lung transplants on that age, but now my husband does not think he would make it through it! He now is on oxygen 24/7 and has a long cord that follows him everywhere through the house! We have been prayed on at church and through many friends and neighbors, but looks like God’s plan of healing is when he gets to heaven! i have also been prayed for, I am 76 for my knees that need surgery, my bladder that is falling and my high blood pressure, but that looks like that will be a heaven bound healing too! I had an angry day today, so reading your devotion pointed at me and made me realize I really need to tone my anger and shape up, so thank you, I feel as though you were ansepwered prayer and this was exactly what I need to read and remember! Thank You❤️

I definitely needed this today. There are some things going on at work that are completely unfair and I have been angry about what is going on. Today’s devotional reminded me that I need to pray about my reactions and responses to these situations and to express my feelings appropriately.
