When was the last time you got angry??? Maybe 2 minutes back when things did not go as you planned! Anger is an emotion that we have…
We cannot live without being angry…
However, it could be “very dangerous” if not dealt properly… Let us see what we can find from the treasure book!!!
OPENING THE TREASURE BOOK
Clue 1 – Example of Cain & Abel
Here we see the story of two brothers, Cain & Abel. Cain is the FIRST born of Adam, in fact the FIRST child born into this world. Abel was his brother. They were part of one family – the FIRST family on earth. But being brothers, what led Cain to murder Abel? – the FIRST murder in the bible…
Well……, that is too many FIRSTS.
We see that Cain was ANGRY because Lord respected Abel and his offering but not the one Cain himself offered. Anger is not good if it lingers. God himself warned Cain but he did not take heed or handled his anger properly. Anger destroys, causes destruction and leads to SIN. For Cain, it destroyed his happiness (his countenance fell) and caused him to take Abel’s life, that is destruction. It lead him to SIN – murder HIS OWN brother.
SIN ultimately separated him from GOD.
It clearly states that anger, if not dealt properly, could lead us to sin. It also gives us a tip – do not let your anger linger for long. If it does, it gives place to the devil and could lead us to sin like what happened with Cain.
Sooner you settle your anger,
If not, it could lead you to sin!!!
Anger is a human emotion, but could lead us to sin if not dealt properly. Handle your anger properly by not letting it to linger for long (before the sun goes down). It is better to settle it then and there – the sooner you settle it, the better it is for you!!! Before you sleep you should settle your anger. Do not carry it to the next day!!! After all Jesus taught us to forgive and forget!!!
Father we thank you for enlightening us, please help us to deal with our anger in the correct manner. Help us to settle it soon and not let it linger for long, in Jesus’ name Amen!!
