Today’s Verse/Thought: Wrapping It Up
Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:3;
But we . . . are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. II Corinthians 3:18
In our discussion over the last thirty days on the subject of Properly Managed Anger, we have looked at what anger is and where it comes from; what happens when anger is internalized; what happens when we vent our anger; the proper management of anger; the keys to do the same; and finally, how God is the only answer to keeping our anger under control.
It is important to live our lives in right relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ and to allow His control of our temper, our disposition-then and only then can we experience freedom and joy in Him, and right relationships with others.
