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).  

 

Psalm 37:8  

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.
