Tame Your Temper

You have a temper. There is nothing unique about that. Most people have tempers, in varying degrees, of course. God does not ask that you get rid of that temper. But He does say that if you are to be happy, it must be brought under control and rechanneled to proper use. God cannot use a man without a temper as well as one with a controlled temper. Too many professed Christians never get “wrought up” about anything; they never get indignant with injustice, with corruption in high places, or with the godless traffics which barter away the souls and bodies of men.

Prayer for the day

Use my anger to help others, Lord. When I see them hurting or Your world decaying, let me be challenged to reach out—instead of merely exploding.

    It is important to have an opinion on many significant issues. However remember your conduct is being watched by nonbelievers . Make your point in a way that would honor Christ.

  2. Joy says:

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son to die on Calvrys tree from sin to set me free. Some day he’s coming back what a glory that will be I am so glad that he died for me. Amen”

  3. Donna Harlow says:

    My anger comes from within. When I’m trying to explain to a non Christian about God and how to be saved through Christ, and what he did for us so we may be saved, I just can’t seem to illustrate it like I want so they can really understand about what salvation is. Please pray for me so that I can explain better how to except Christ as my savior.

    It is difficult for a believer to witness atrocities against man without becoming angry. However be certain that it is controlled,righteous, anger.
