We live in an angry world. Somehow we all think we have a right to vent our anger and that others should be cool with it. Is that being angry without winning? I don’t think so because then you’re upsetting someone else… Venting to God is different - He can take it without sucking another person into it. But anger as an emotion isn’t one we are ever to aspire to, hope for or work towards. It’s something we experience that we need to overcome, like fear.
We are stuck with anger as a human emotion, but we CAN overcome it! When we let go of anger and resentment and just trust God to be faithful to His Word and forgive, we are the ones who heal and receive peace. This enables us to do what Jesus said was the most important thing to do - love. Love God and love people, that’s our commandment. Let God do the rest. @branthansen #theywillknowusbyourlove #forgive #trustinthelord #yourjourneytobeingwhole #shalom #dailydevotional
