Psalm 37:8 New Living Translation (NLT)
Are you quick to lose your temper? We have all experienced strong feelings when things took place that we did not expect. Anger is a very strong emotion; sustained anger is a very destructive emotion and gives a foothold to evil. God’s children are to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry because anger does not produce righteousness (James 1:19-20).
Stop being angry!
Turn from your rage!
Do not lose your temper—
it only leads to harm.
Prayer: Lord, help me to put a watch over my emotions; to choose to love and believe the best of others. I can see the enemy is trying to get people angry and bitter. With patience I will gain greater understanding; so, I will remain focused on You with trust. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
