My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
My anger sometimes has a life of it's own and is terribly difficult for me to control without God's help and guidance. I'm not one to fly off the handle without being provoked, but I am one to stand up and fight back when I feel that I'm being wronged. I have mellowed as I've aged, but I still have trouble keeping my anger under wraps. God does not approve of my anger and I continue to try and tame it and the hold it has over me. As usual, the Holy Spirit is my hidden weapon and I need to tap into this amazing resource.
